How can I donate?
Thursday morning drop off or bus! Your child can bring the coat to school on December 9th we will be ready to collect them at drop off or from the bus.
Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. www.cradlestocrayons.org
One Warm Coat works with local non-profit organizations to support coat delivery to families in need. Their partner in Chester County is Maternal and Child Health Consortium, a non-profit supporting mothers and newborns with three great programs for families – Family Benefits, Healthy Start, and the Family Center. This organization serves our community and neighbors enabling them to raise healthy kids. www.onewarmcoat.org
What is Day of Giving?
NEES has traditionally had a Day of Giving charitable project on December 9th that involves every child, teacher and staff member during school time, with parent volunteers to help in school. This year, the kids and staff will be writing cards for seniors in assisted living and nursing homes as a project with CHS students. We wanted to offer an option for families to engage in community giving. Volunteers to collect are most welcome. Hope you can help!
We sincerely thank everyone who participates by donating and/or volunteering – what a wonderful way to teach our students about the spirit of giving!
