Ben-Hem Holiday Giving
As the holiday season (and craziness) approaches we want to pause to help those around us in need this season. In an effort to offer a variety of ways to contribute we ask for your help to make a difference in the lives of others.
Adopt A Family: We'll be collecting gifts to fulfill the wish lists of two families in need. Please click here to view the wish lists and sign up to help if you can.
Gift Card Drive: To allow parents to 'shop' for their children, even though they don't have the resources to do do, we're collecting gift cards. Gift cards in any amount will be happily accepted, and the following stores were recommended by DCF: Target, Walmart, TJX, Visa gift cards, etc.
All gift cards should be sent in by December 10 in a sealed envelope addressed to Ben-Hem PTO/Gift Card Drive. (If you already have gift cards you're not using, feel free to donate those too.)
Used Winter Coat Drive: Let's partner as a community and do what we can to ensure those around us stay warm. We will happily be accepting gently warn warm winter coats in conjunction with Anton's Cleaners 'Coats for Kids' Drive. These coats will be cleaned and distributed free of charge to individuals in our community through the Coats for Kids Distribution Partners network. Coats can be dropped in the box in the Ben-Hem Lobby and will be accepted until January 10, 2015.
Our hope is not only to support those around us and make a real difference in the lives of others, but to help our children understand the importance of truly caring about the community and being part of a solution to make things better. Thank you in advance.
