Grayson School Parent's Association

Families Forward Community Service Project

Grayson Parents,

Thank you for participating in our first GPA community service project with Families Forward.

https://familiesforwardphilly.org

We are asking families to collect the following items and drop them off at school no later than Nov 5th. Students will be assembling care packages for the elementary age residents of this program on Nov 20th after hearing a presentation from a Families Forward representative on the purpose and efforts of their program.

We are asking all families to support this wonderful and meaningful service project for our students and the community.  You can set the amount you choose to spend by selecting the quantity of items that you are wiling to purchase for families in need.

If you would rather donate money for the GPA to purchase supplies that is an option listed here as well.

Be sure to ask friends and family for unopened/new toys and new/gently used elementary aged books and add those (once you collect them) to your total donation on this list.   Donation receipts are available upon request.

Please complete your donations by Nov 1st so we know what we have donated.  We appreciate your generosity to those less fortunate and also to programs that educate our students about helping others in our community.
