The IB Christmas Hope Organization is sponsoring an Angel Tree Gift Card Drive for Christmas 2019. The drive will run from November 22 through December 16.
While the 3-way race at Illini Bluffs and the collection jars at local businesses raise money specifically for the food baskets, the purpose of the Angel Tree Gift Card Drive is to collect gift cards to provide to our 6th -12th grade students in need and send a little holiday cheer their way. We currently have identified about 130 students in this age group that would benefit from the drive this holiday season.
Our hope is to provide each child with $20 in gift cards along with a small wrapped gift.
If you would like to help us meet our goal, please purchase a gift card that you feel a child in this age group would enjoy and return the gift card to any school office by Monday, December 16, with a note indicating it is for the Angel Tree Gift Card Drive.
Your assistance with our effort to spread kindness and joy this holiday season is greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Webb at 389-2231, Option 4 or e-mail.
