This year Country Trails is going to be participating in a Caring Mall. Each grade level has adopted a charity and will be learning about the charity, the community it serves and the items that are needed. Throughout the month of April, grade levels will be learning about the power of giving, needs in our community, kindness, hunger, poverty and homelessness. We will be engaging the children with conversation and great books. During the week of April 29-May 3rd, students will be able to bring in any items from any of the adopted charity’s lists and deliver it to the charity (which will be set up in the lunch room) during their grade level times.
Below is a list of the adopted charities:
The Elgin Police Department
Anderson Animal Shelter
Go With the Flow
The Elgin Crisis Center
Ronald McDonald House-CDH
Edward Hines VA Hospital
Please click here for more information including a wish list from all of the above charities if you are interested in donating. Along with the adopted charities we will also be doing a coin drive to purchase gift cards for each of the charities.
Thank you so much in advance for your donations and kindness. Together we can change our community for the better. Sir Winston Churchill said it best, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give”.
