Giving Basket Program
Dear Marshall Families,
This year at Marshall, due to generous parent volunteers, we are able to sponsor a giving program to provide for families over the holidays. We will send a letter home to families that describes the program (look for the double sided green paper in your child’s backpack on Friday, 11/21). For those families that need assistance during the holiday season, they will complete the back of the form which lists their middle school age students and other children in their family.
We will ask for the forms back by November 26th. The administration will anonymize the forms and then parent volunteers will make a tag for each gift the children want for the holidays. We expect the basket to be available with tags for the taking by December 1st.
Then community and staff members will take tags out of the basket, sign them out, and bring back wrapped presents for each child. Presents will need to be turned in by Monday, December 15th. Then, family members can come in to pick up the gifts for their family from December 17th to December 19th.
This is an excellent opportunity to reach out to our families. We want to give a big thank you to all who can participate in the Giving Basket program. You are making a wonderful contribution to our children. Thank you all!
