Thanksgiving Food Drive

Thanksgiving Food Drive

It’s the time of year again where we take a moment to pause and give thanks for the many wonderful things we have in our lives. It is also a time to share with others who have less. This Thanksgiving, High Tech Elementary PTA is proud to partner with Growing Home, a  local non-profit that supports North Denver area children and families who are in need.

Our school has been challenged to help Growing Home provide 60 Thanksgiving Baskets for families in need — Growing home is aiming to put together a total of 300 baskets this Thanksgiving. We can easily make this goal by working together as a community.

Below is a list of requested items, broken down by classroom teacher. Please find your child’s teacher, and bring the listed items to their classroom anytime between Monday, November 2 and Thursday, November 12. Growing Home will pick up our items on Friday, November 13.

We are aiming for 100% participation, which will be rewarded with a special prize for the children. So bring over and above the number of items assigned in order to ensure success!

We are also collecting gift cards for King Soopers and Walmart in denominations of $10 and $15 in order to cover the cost of a turkey for each family. We are looking to collect 60 of these cards in order to make our Thanksgiving Baskets complete! Please consider making this donation. All gift cards can be turned in to the Thanksgiving Turkey located in the front office.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! If you have any questions, please contact Mim Ochsenbein, PTA community chair.
