Our Thanksgiving Food Drive has been going on all month and will end on Monday, November 25. Monday morning will be your final opportunity to drop off non-perishable food items at school before James delivers the donations to St. Anthony's Kitchen in San Francisco. On behalf of the student STAR Teams who sponsored and promoted this event, thank you for making a difference!
As our Food Drive comes to its conclusion, another Stanbridge holiday service tradition begins. The Family Giving Tree is now on display in the Hayden Hall foyer and we will be collecting donations through mid-December for less fortunate children and families. Gift tags are displayed on the tree and feature the name and age of a child in need, as well as that child's specific gift request. Stanbridge families who wish to participate can take a tag from the tree, and then return the tag with their unwrapped donation to Hayden Hall by December 10. Donated items will be delivered to the FGT warehouse by the Stanbridge Junior High students during their December Day of Service, and later distributed to the specific recipients by the FGT organization in time for the holidays. More information on the Family Giving Tree, as well as all of this year's community service events, can be found on the Community Service page.
