Holiday Store Collections for Three Rivers School
Community members are invited to donate gently used items, as well as wrapping paper, bows and tags to the student Holiday Store at Three Rivers. The school is looking to fill a classroom with these goods. Students will be earning Holiday Bucks through good behavior and lending a helping hand during the next few weeks. Students can use these bucks to “shop” at the Holiday Store Dec. 13 and Dec. 15. The goal is to allow all students to experience the joy of giving gifts to loved ones.
