For many of our families, the holiday season can be a stressful time. The extra financial pressure of this time can put unneeded stress on these families. To meet this need, Communities In Schools of Puyallup partners with the staff at our site schools and numerous community partners to provide food and gifts to our families every holiday season. In November, we collect donations of Thanksgiving meals to send home with families that need it. In December, we collect donations of holiday meals and gifts to send home with our families.
In 2017, we supported 950 students from 360 families thanks to the generous support of our community. Students who often don’t get to experience the joy and celebration of the holidays were able to participate in this time.
If you are interested in supporting our holiday help through donations, please contact Colleen Lindgren.
