OGMS Holiday Service Project 2014
December 3 – 12, 2014
The Orange Grove Student Council and Student Action Committee are teaming up to collect donations for two organizations in Tucson.
We hope you can help:
Wednesday, December 3 at 8:55 am – Meet in the commons to distribute the boxes and posters to the classrooms.
Friday, December 12, 2:30-3:15 – Join us to sort and box the Aviva donations. All OGMS students and parents are welcome to join us after school on the 12th. Students should be picked up by 3:15 pm. We will then drive the donations to Aviva.
Aviva Children’s Services is a non-profit agency that works with Child Protective Services to provide support and resources to children who have experienced abuse, neglect or abandonment. You can learn more about Aviva at http://www.avivatucson.org.
They welcome donations for children of all ages (infants – age 17), but they have a particular need for donations for teens:
- NEW clothing (pajamas, socks, underwear, mittens, scarves, gloves)
- NEW unwrapped toys (games, books, dolls, arts & craft kits, sports equipment, stuffed animals — if toys require batteries, please include)
- Stocking Stuffers (nail polish, make up, lip balm, decks of cards, small games, stickers, colored pencils)
We cannot collect gift cards or used items; we can only collect the items listed above.
The Community Food Bank is a non-profit organization that serves southern Arizona. Arizona is the 3rd highest state in the nation for food insecurity. In Pima County, 29.7% of children are living below the poverty level. The Food Bank’s goal is to provide Arizonans with regular access to adequate and nutritious food. You can learn more at http://communityfoodbank.com.
We will be collecting non-perishable cereal, beans, pasta, canned foods, etc.
Donations for both projects will be collected in the first period classes between December 3rd – December 12th
