Light Up the Holidays

Making the holidays brighter for those in need

Light Up the Holidays helps local families and children in need by making their holidays brighter. In addition to our immediate community, we provide gifts and gift cards to children and families identified by Offender Aid and Restoration (OAR), Mended Little Hearts, and Bridges to Independence.

The program will run from November 25 – December 13, 2019.

How You Can Help

Select one or more gift tags from the bulletin board located in the front lobby. Each tag contains an item requested by a family or child in our area. Place new, unwrapped items in the donation boxes located in the front lobby with the tag taped to the item. Please limit gifts to $20 and under.

If you can’t make it to school to pick up a tag, you can still help! We are collecting gift cards for Target, Walmart, Giant, and Safeway. Drop them in the donation boxes at your convenience. The boxes will be emptied every day.
