Volunteers and gifts needed – Fourth annual Santa’s Workshop – Bring on the Merry! – Monday December 18th

The workshop gives all our little elves the opportunity to purchase gifts for their loved ones for only $1 per item. Proceeds from this event will be donated to a local charity. The team is accepting donations very soon. Location will be announced in the coming week. Some popular items include books, jewellery, cufflinks, DVDs, CDs, Games, puzzles, candles, pictures, toys, ties, scarves, vases, ornaments and anything else that could be re-gifted. Gifts for Dads run out quickly so donations of men’s gifts are very much appreciated. The organizers are also accepting donations of wrapping paper, gift bags, bows and name tags as the older grades will be helping to wrap the students’ purchases. We will have boxes in each of the homerooms very soon. Stay tuned! If you would like to help volunteer for this fun event, please contact Jennie at jennieclaire@hotmail.com
