Greetings Flyer Families and Friends!We all know that the holidays are supposed to be times of togetherness and joy, but for many families they can be stressful and anxiety filled. The idea was brought to us to launch a drive to help a local family in need this holiday and everyone was excited to be a part of it.So here it is Flyers…The First Annual Lindbergh Adopt-A Family Program!
This year we will be supporting the family of a local woman, recently divorced and living in supportive housing with her 7 children. She’s a graduate of Divine Child and works full time but is having a hard time making ends meet. The children range in ages from 6 to 18, two of which have a disability. Each family member took some time and wrote out a wish list. The lists are far from flashy and contain many simple necessities. Things like fluffy blankets and pillows, twin sheets, household supplies, boots and shoes. They also include fun things like footballs, Pokemon cards, scrunchies, Popsockets, gift cards and purses. We’d love to make this a holiday to remember for this family so here’s where we come in Flyers!!
We understand not everyone is able to get into the school to choose a tag so we’ve established 4 ways for you to donate:1. Select a tag from the “gift tree” that we have placed in the lobby. Wrap the gift, attach the tag and place in the bins we will place in the lobby. Take some time to look at the tags, there are some good ones in there! Again, they aren’t flashy and many are only in the $5 range.2. Drop a gift card in the office in ANY denomination (no gift is too small) to one of the following locations: Target, Amazon, Kroger OR Aldi 3. Send a check to school in your child’s folder made out to “LINDBERGH PTA“. Please place in an envelope labeled “GIFT DRIVE” 4. The PTA will have a table and donation jar at Bingo for Books this Friday to collect cash donations, things already purchased and help w tag selection!
These are by no means the only ways to give. We are open to suggestions. The only thing that is FIRM is the deadline.DEADLINE FOR DONATIONS IS DECEMBER 16th
We’ve already gotten things rolling with EXTREMELY generous gifts from Executive Dentistry in Dearborn and The Dearborn Goodfellows!(If you know of a Lindbergh family that could use some help this season, please contact Ms. Tiba or any PTA board member)
