Leschi Elementary Giving Garland
The Giving Garland is a charitable event to support Leschi Elementary children and their siblings, and every family receives gift cards to an easily accessible grocery store.
In non-COVID times, tags hung from the garland in the main hall at school, each tag representing a gift; some items are fun: toys, bikes, art supplies, board games, balls, books and sports gear and others are basic essentials: clothing, bedding, warm coats, diapers or car seats.
While we are settling into the “new normal” as we close out 2021 with most students back to school in person, our Giving Garland is still virtual. So this year there is no garland and colorful tags with “wished for” items, but the need for support in our community is still significant…the impact of the past 20 months continues to present challenges for so many families.
As we near the donation deadline of Monday, Dec 13th ways you can still give are…
GIFT CARDS – In increments of $25, $50 or $100 - for groceries, clothing and gifts for the children who enjoy shopping for themselves. Gift cards may not feel as fun to give, but the kiddos LOVE getting them.
