We are so excited to say that our collection bins are now in place in PRES, labeled by grade. Bins are located in the front of the school - walk in the double doors, past the front office door and take a left and you can't miss them! 

Donation reminders:

  • Please label your items with as much information as possible - your family's name, child's grade, donation family code, and description of item(s) being donated. 
  • Items should be brought in UNWRAPPED. They will be wrapped by the families at a later date. 
  • Big Ticket or larger items can be donated at a separate time - email us at to coordinate. 
  • If you would still like to donate, please do! Winter items such as coats, boots, snow pants, etc are especially important to these families and would be greatly appreciated!! There are still a few items left available on some of the sign up sheets as well.

Thank you again and please let us know if you have any questions!
