Organizers of the initiative, educators Ms. Blatz, Mr. Harkley and Ms. Collings said: “It is incredible to see our students and local community work together to help those in need in our community. The 20 Days of Giving Campaign is a highlight of our school year. The old adage ‘It’s better to give than receive’ certainly rings true with this campaign. Thank to you everyone who was involved in this year’s initiative – those who donated, those who collected and those who put together the wonderful hampers. We wish everyone in our community a wonderful holiday season.”
