Veterans Drive

November 1, 2018

 

Parents and Guardians,

With the holiday season fast approaching, WVW would like to get all of our students, faculty, and staff in the spirit of giving by helping a group that often gets over looked, our veterans.  To do so, we will be holding a “donation drive” to gather goods for the veterans residing and being cared for at the VA Medical Center.  This year’s drive will also expand somewhat to help veterans at local American Legions and those identified within the community.

Though the holidays can often be a stressful time in terms of spending, we are hoping that you can find it in your budgets to make a small donation to this worthy cause.  A list of items they are in need of is located on the reverse side of this sheet.  Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated!

Student donations can be placed in the bins in their respective schools. Any parents or community members looking to drop off donations can do so by visiting the main office of their student’s building. Donations will be accepted starting on Tuesday, November 27th, with the final day of collection being Friday, December 21st.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.  Have a safe and happy holiday season!
