Staff Sponsors Gift Drive
Sponsor Deadline November 7
The Holidays can be a very stressful time for many families. Once again, the Peru Public Schools faculty and staff is sponsoring a gift-giving program for the children of our district. Last year we sponsored 110 district children. The generosity of our community was outstanding. As with last year, we are focusing on providing clothing for children.
We are currently looking for families to sponsor children. Sponsors will be given a number with information about the child’s age, gender and clothing size, some time prior to Thanksgiving. We will also include clothing ideas that the parents of the children suggested. We ask that sponsors return gifts in a bag marked with the child’s number to Parkside School by Wednesday, December 7, 2016. School district staff will distribute the wrapped clothing gifts to parents prior to Winter Break. As always, sponsors will remain anonymous. Please note that we want gifts to be wrapped this year.
If you are interested in sponsoring a child for the Holidays, please return the bottom portion of this form to your child’s school no later than Monday, November 7. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact Mary Jo Sonnenberg at (815) 223-1111 ext 120.
Thank you very much!
