CHE Holiday Assistance Program December 2 - 9, 2013
Each year, Caldwell Heights Elementary (CHE) identifies children and families in need to “adopt” as part of their holiday assistance program. As part of our continued partnership with CHE, the RRC will participate this year by collecting needs/wish list items and gift cards (suggested minimum amount per card is $10 to HEB, Target, or Walmart). Last year, we sponsored 35 children and collected $1020 in gift cards that we gave to families in need! Look for the Christmas tree in the One Stop Center, Avery 201, after Thanksgiving. The tree will have angel ornaments on it along with the child’s wish list or gift card amount.
Please bring all unwrapped items to the OSC on or before Monday, December 9 at 5:00 p.m.
Interested in sponsoring a child? Contact Jill Seidenberger, email@example.com
