Save the Date: December 14, 2019 for our Annual Shopping Event with Veterans Memorial Elementary School
Please save the date for our Annual Shopping Event. The event is a wonderful opportunity to provide underprivileged children attending Veterans Memorial Elementary School with warm clothes and presents for the holidays.
Each $100.00 we raise allows us to shop for an additional child. In previous years we have been able to shop for 50 or more children. Please donate here and help us achieve our goal!
We also hope you will consider joining us that morning as a volunteer shopper. Our volunteers are paired with a Veterans Memorial Elementary student and help the child pick out their warm clothes. Most volunteer shoppers are finished in about one hour. Every year we receive heartwarming feedback from our volunteers about how much they enjoyed their experience. Please email us at email@example.com if you are able to volunteer.
