Holiday Drive Sponsor Information
We hope you are enjoying the wonderful summer and stay safe during this unprecedented time. The warm weather and long days allow us to enjoy time with our family and friends. It’s hard to believe that in a few months, the cool crisp air will return along with school.
This year, the work to support children and families are even in greater need due to the pandemic. To ensure that all of Avondale children have a chance to succeed, Gift of Giving (GOG), a non-profit 501c3 organization, in collaboration with community partners, will be hosting our 2020 Holiday Drive in December.
WHAT IS GIFT OF GIVING HOLIDAY DRIVE?
The Holiday Drive supports Avondale students in the free and reduced lunch program by providing students with basic needs such as winter items and food for the 2 weeks of Holiday break.
GoG works closely with Avondale staff and families to ensure that students receive the needed items for school through an annual survey. The information helps ensure that the students receive the much needed item for winter.
HOW MUCH WAS PROVIDED TO STUDENTS IN 2014-2019?
3500+ winter items 3500+ clothing/shoes 37,000+ canned of food
