Erie Uplink, a local organization that supports Erie families with resources to fulfill their basic needs, has asked for our help. We are going to work together to create toiletry kits for their Tiger Packs. Tiger Packs are sent home with students (at their parent's request) and contain non-perishable food items (and in this case, travel sized toiletry items) to help supplement a student's healthy diet over long weekends and holiday breaks.
We will be collecting the items from February 13th-February 23rd, and then assembling the kits after school in the library, on February 24th.
In order to keep things organized, we are asking that each grade bring a specific item, and that parents sign up for what they are bringing. Toiletries should be travel sized, and hotel samples are great, just as long as they are unused! If you happen to have extra samples please feel free to bring them in as well! All items should be left in the collection bin at the front of the school.
Note*** Since the 3rd graders already did their "Day of Caring" and collected items for other organizations, we limited the request for that grade to gallon sized plastic bags. If you have a child in that grade, and would still like to participate, please feel free to sign up anywhere you see a slot!
Cash donations for any items that we do not receive are also appreciated!
Thank you so much for your support, and please consider bringing your children and meeting with us on Friday, February 24th to help assemble the kits. It should go pretty quickly, but will be a great way to show our children the spirit of giving back to our community!
