CHRISTMAS IS A TIME OF GIVING…
The Christmas holiday season is upon us! With the season comes the thought of giving. As we have done in past years, rather than participate in classroom gift exchanges we encourage our students to be involved in Warman Elementary School’s See A Need, Fill A Need campaign to help others in need. The total amount of money collected will be divided between three wonderful and worthwhile organizations; Many Hopes (building and repairing schools in Kenya), Canadian Red Cross ( Syrian refugee crisis) and the Warman Food Bank.
In years past, Warman Elementary has gone above and beyond in the giving department. We would love to make a big difference in the lives of others, both locally and abroad, this holiday season! Donations are being collected in the classrooms beginning Tuesday, December 1st until Thursday, December 17th.
While teachers have always appreciated the gifts they receive at Christmas time, Warman Elementary School teachers would be delighted if students chose to put any money they may have spent on a gift towards the See a Need, Fill A Need Christmas Project!
The Syrian Refugee Crisis continues to dominate world news as many seek to flee their homeland to escape violence and unrest. Many Hopes is an organization that rescues orphaned and abandoned children in Kenya and educates them. More information on these can be found at the following websites. www.manyhopes.org or www.redcross.ca
Your generous gift is appreciated in any amount. Those requiring a receipt for a larger donation can donate online at:
http://www.redcross.ca and follow the donate link for Syrian refugees or http://www.manyhopes.org and follow the donate link. (If you have donated in this manner you can let the classroom teacher know the amount to add to your classrooms total)
The classroom that collects the largest amount towards the See a Need, Fill a Need Christmas Project will receive a Pizza Party during the noon hour of their choosing.
We thank you in advance for helping Warman Elementary School students experience the gift of giving to those less fortunate. Happy Holidays!
