Pine Grove Middle Network
Many thanks to everyone who has reached out to offer donations to Pine Grove Middle Network to support students in need at Pine Grove Middle.
We are hoping that our room of support will allow students and their parents or guardians the ability to "shop" for food, toiletries, bedding and towels, cleaning supplies, school supplies, shoes and clothing throughout the school year.
Along with providing items in The Grove, we will be placing several bins of necessities in the Counseling and Nurse’s offices. Items for these bins will include single toothbrushes, trial size toothpaste, trial size hand lotions, nail clippers, facial wipes, small deodorants, small hand sanitizers, lip balm, hair brushes, soap in plastic soap containers, trial size shampoo/ conditioner/ body wash (many of these items can be found at the Dollar Tree). These are "grab and go" items that students can put in their pocket or backpacks and the idea has been very successful. If you can donate from this list, that would be very much appreciated!! Although our goal is to have students in need "shop" The Grove for all of the wonderful items that are stocked there, other schools have found that placing bins of necessities in other offices throughout the school has been key to getting the students what they need in the hopes that they will either be identified by staff as needing assistance or that they themselves will ask more about The Grove.
Please take a look at the Sign Up Genius list to see if you're able to donate. We are currently overloaded with clothing and have no additional storage space for clothes. Therefore, we are only taking brand new items in middle school students’ sizes. Thank you for taking the time to look over the list....I know it's pretty detailed, but so far everything that we ask for gets used!
Donations will now be accepted at school. However, PLEASE NOTIFY ME FIRST if you are bringing a large amount of items so that we do not overwhelm school staff. My goal is for school staff to have to do as little as possible, as they are already overwhelmed with the work they do for our students each day. If you are unable to bring donations to school, please contact me directly to make arrangements. Christina – [email protected]gmail.com or 443-564-1400
If you ever have any questions or know of someone who would like to be put on the Sign Up Genius email list, or if you no longer want to receive these notifications, please let me know. Thanks for your support!!
