Project Wrap-In is Coming on December 7th, 2015!
Each student is asked to bring in one new, unused gift ($5- $15) to store in homeroom the week of December 7. Students in grades 9th-12th may instead buy a gift for a young child of any age with their own gender in mind if they would like; however, keep in mind that children benefiting from this outreach opportunity may also be teens.) Additionally, students are asked to bring wrapping materials like wrapping paper, tape, ribbon, bows, etc.
Our hope for all students is:
Bring in one present ($5-$15).
- Contribute wrapping paper and/or other wrapping supplies.
- Bring a giving and positive attitude.
- Have fun!We are looking forward to making a difference in the lives of many children!
