Christmas Winter Clothing Drive

Published: December 8, 2014


Dear Grundy Parents,


During the 13th century, churches in England began the practice of placing metal boxes at their entrances during the Christmas season to collect special offerings.  The money was given to the poor on December 26th, which soon became known as “Boxing Day”.  In almost every English-speaking nation (except the United States), Boxing Day is one of the Christmas season’s most honored traditions.  Even though Boxing Day never caught on in America, the spirit of giving to charity at Christmas time certainly did.

With Christmas just around the corner, our thoughts turn to those who are less fortunate than we are.  As a community service project, we will be conducting a Christmas Winter Clothing Drive through December 19th.  We are asking Grundy families to donate new or gently used coats, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, snow pants, and snow boots. This is an excellent opportunity for our children to learn the true meaning of Christmas.  Please give generously.

On December 19th, the winter clothing will be sorted and organized in the science/art room after school.  Grundy families who are in need of winter clothing will be invited to stop by from 3:00pm-7:00pm.  The remaining winter clothing will be donated to the Salvation Army.  If you have any questions, please email or call 284-2010.
