Toy Drive January 24-28

Dear Parents,

We hope your holiday festivities were bright and meaningful and that 2022 has gotten off to a strong start. Although this past year presented us with many challenges, I think we can all agree that we are blessed to have this community.

In the past, Gillispie has delivered donations to an orphanage in Tijuana, Casa Hogar Niños Con Visión, that serves children from infancy through young adulthood. With Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away, now is the perfect time to continue this tradition of showing compassion.

This is a completely voluntary activity and one we hope you might do as a family.

  • Please have your child (or children) bring in ONE unwrapped item to school on January 24-28.
  • This can be a (new or gently used) toy, game, puzzle, book (in Spanish), or item of clothing (all sizes welcome). Please don’t send food.
  • Students are encouraged to attach letters, pictures, and/or homemade cards.
  • Most importantly, have a conversation with your child(ren) in the selection of the item and talk about why this could make someone else happy and the overall importance of making a difference.

There will be large bins outside on both Fay and Girard Monday – Friday, January 24-28 at drop-off and pick-up. We will ask the children to drop their items in these bins on their way into school.

Thank you all very much for considering getting involved in this activity!

This is a project of the Gillispie Community Relations Committee: Jenny Garza (Chair), Casey Armstrong, Jessica Goff, Zoe Kleinbub, Angela Nadi, Lynnsay Rogers, AnneMarie Sachs, Erica Huebner, Debbie Rodriguez.
