Central School - Gift of Giving 2020
Hello Central School Families-
For the past 12 years, the Central School community has generously supported two Chicago-based organizations -- LYDIA Home and Metropolitan Family Services (MFS).
This year given COVID-19, and the economic uncertainity that has accompanied it, both of these organizations need our help more than ever.
Due to all of the COVID-19 restrictions, LYDIA Home and MFS have both requested Target and Amazon gift cards this year for the children and families they serve, instead of unwrapped items.
We are hoping to collect enough gift cards for about 40 children at LYDIA, which will be used for their clothing and school needs throughout the year, as well their birthday gifts and presents for this holiday season (which comes to about $100-$200 per child). And we are hoping to collect gift cards for more than 60 MFS families as well, which will be used for the holidays.
LYDIA Home told us that their children have bascially been at the facility since March and unable to leave the buiding. To lift their spirits, please consider having your child color the attached mitten card for them. We will address each card for you -- simply color, sign and return with your gift card donation.
The collection deadline for gift cards and pictures is Monday, December 14 and they can dropped off at Rebecca Johnson's house (831 Oakwood) or Meghan MacKinnon's house (1046 Greenwood Ave.)
Thank you for your consideration and support!
The Gift of Giving Committee
