Glebe Holiday Stars
Each year, the Glebe Elementary School community works together to provide holiday gifts to Glebe students and their siblings who might not be able to enjoy the happiest of holidays. We need your help to make the holidays a joyful time for all Glebe students.
The Glebe PTA is partnering with Restoration Anglican Church again this year. Restoration Anglican Church is providing generous funding to purchase grocery store gift cards for each participating Glebe family, hosting a Giving Tree with Glebe Stars, and providing other assistance as well. We are fortunate and excited to be partnering with Restoration Anglican Church again this year.
If you would like to participate in this program and purchase a new gift or gifts for these children in need, please contact Beronica Salas for a “Star”. Her office is located on Glebe’s 1st Floor. You can always email us if you can’t make it over to Glebe during the school hours.
Please deliver all new, wrapped gifts by December 13th, we will be distributing the gifts on the 16th of December. Note that we are only accepting new items. Lightly used gifts will not be distributed.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity.
