Christmas Collection Due Friday

Our Saint James School Student Council will be collecting donations to help bring some “Comfort and Joy” to tweens and teens in Manchester this Christmas season.

The gifts we collect will be passed on to MACC Charities to distribute at their annual Christmas party and will specifically be used for kids aged 10 – 14.

If you are able to help, your donation will be greatly appreciated; According to MACC, the kids they deal with in this age group are often fending for themselves for things like food, clothing, and toiletries.

Suggested donations that would be beneficial for these kids (as per MACC) are:

  • Gift Cards for Walgreens or Cumberland Farms (in walking distance from Illing & MHS)
  • Gift Cards for Walmart or Target
  • iTunes Gift Cards or Ear Buds
  • Art Supplies (i.e. such as adult coloring books and colored pencils, pens)

(Please do NOT donate sports equipment such as footballs, basketballs, etc.)

If you are able to donate, please have your student bring in the items to their homeroom teacher by December 15th.  Each homeroom will have a special box for collecting donations.
