Adopt a Family
Thank you to our incredible community for opting in to adopt 54 families this holiday season! We have a few individuals left on our Sign–Up Genius (you would adopt just 1 person, not an entire family). If you opted in, please shop & wrap your presents before December 10th. All gifts will be dropped off on the morning of Dec 10, and we will communicate details through e-mail. We are so grateful for our community’s support!
Sock & Heavy Coat Drive
Key Club & Leadership are running a sock and heavy coat (new or gently used) drive tomorrow through Dec 10 for a homeless encampment in Martinez. Donation bins will be at the flagpole in the morning and in the attendance office throughout the day. We are working in conjunction with the Stanley Leadership program to make this a community effort. Thank you in advance for your donations!
