For our office Christmas charity project this year we have adopted a brother and sister through Guild Elementary School in Gallatin. My son went to Guild, and we loved the school and all the faculty and staff. It is a great school, but 66% of the students are considered economically disadvantaged.
Cayden is almost 6, and Sunshine just turned 9. Our goal is for each child to receive 1 large toy, several small toys, and some clothing. If we can do more, that is even better. I have spoken with their mom, and she has given me their sizes and some toy suggestions.
If you are willing to help, you may select a gift to purchase, or donate money or gift cards and PPEC will shop for you.
I will have a sign-up sheet in my office if you wish to purchase a gift. If you or your company would like to sponsor one of the children in the family and purchase all of that particular child’s gifts, that would be great as well.
If you choose to donate money or gift cards for PPEC to purchase items, please do so as early as possible to allow staff ample time to shop for the children.
All donated items must be received here at the office no later than Tuesday, December 18 (our Christmas Party). I will deliver the gifts to the school on Thursday, December 20.
ALSO, if you are going to be replacing your desktop or laptop this Christmas, I will be glad to take your old one off of your hands, clean it up, and donate it to a classroom at Guild. To make sure that the computers can be used by the school (and that I can get them there), I will only take flat-screen monitors and computers that are running Windows XP and newer operating systems. You are welcome to donate a PC without a monitor.
