Holiday’s Drives

Posted on: November 28, 2023

December is here and the holiday season is upon us! Soon we will be enjoying the celebrations and the winter break. For this reason we have several Holiday Drives that will be active during this month of December, 2023. The first is our Annual Saltonstall’s Giving Tree which helps provide a coats, gloves and hats or a gift card (for food or a small present) to our students in need this season. Donations can be in a form of a gift card from Walmart, Target, Market basket,(or any food store that you prefer), Or you can reach out to me to donate a coat, hat and gloves, or by Venmo. Be a part of this new tradition! 

 Also, our 8th graders and Mr. Graziani are collecting canned food and you can send your donation with your student or dropped it at the main office before Dec 20th. Finally the Salem High School JROTC along with Toys for Tots are collecting unwrapped toys, you can dropped your donation on a box that is in front of the main office. See more information for this three events bellow. 

This year has been very hard on many families in our school and our community because of a combination of things, first, the decrease of resources and then, the increment families in need of support. Our District didn’t received the assistance for  the Thanksgiving basked that we got for many years, the city only counts with a few organizations for food pantry distribution and other supports and they have been operating at full capacity.  All this has caused an overflow of families in need of all kinds of support and with the  dropped temperatures many of them are having struggles to provide proper winter gear to their children. Help us support families in need in our school and community this holiday season.

The giving tree will be collecting donations until Dec 19th, and The 8th graders Food Drive will be collecting until Dec 20th. 

Please reach out if you have any question. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. 

Hugs
