Our Annual Food Drive is so very important to our KES families as well as those right in our very own neighborhoods and county!
This year, we are collecting canned goods and gift cards to Walmart and Lowe's
Your donation will be used to help families in three different facets of our community:
- KES Families - We will be able to stock the pantries of some of our KES families over this holiday season.
- Families in our Neighborhoods - We have partnered with Five Stones Church and their Thanksgiving Outreach Program called the "Turkey Fry." They work with the community to fry turkeys and assemble grocery bags with all of the sides for a Thanksgiving meal to give to Waxhaw area families in need, specifically the families at Western Union Elementary School, South Providence School and Waxhaw Elementary School. They especially need gift cards to area Supermarkets, like Walmart, to purchase the turkeys and gift cards to Lowe's for the oil to fry the turkeys in.
- Families in Union County - We have also partnered with the Kiwanis Club of Monroe to collect canned goods for the Union County Christmas Bureau, which distributes to families in need within Union County.
Please sign up below if you are able to purchase a gift card or two. This will help us keep track of the amount of turkeys, oil and perishable items like produce and milk we will be able to purchase for these families.
No need to sign up for canned food donations....just send them in with your kiddo!
Please send in Gift Cards by Friday, 11/8 and Canned Goods by Friday, 11/22
The class that brings in the most food and gift cards in each grade will also be rewarded something spectacular, complements of your PTO!
Thank you in advance for your very generous donation!
The KES PTO
