As the holidays approach and Christmas cheer is being spread throughout the world, the CHS Student Council and NHS, high school service organizations, traditionally focus on heightening local children’s happiness during the holidays. However, we are only one of the many organizations attempting to do so. There is a Santa’s Helper fundraiser on both sides of the border, the Stuff the Bus campaign, as well as the Rockathon for the AMHC kids. But there is another group, senior citizens, that needs to be included in the fun as well.
With this in mind, Student Council is asking you to donate small items to put into 2 gift baskets, one for a female and one for a male. Gift cards to Walmart, Rite Aid,or local grocery stores; gloves; word searches; puzzles; books (Iarge print please); or anything that you might buy for a grandparent would be acceptable contributions. OUr plan is to collect these by Friday, December 21 and then deliver them on Monday, December 24 complete with Christmas caroling and a visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Items can be dropped off at the Calais High School front office. Sarah will make sure they get into the correct basket. Please help us make our senior citizen’s holiday brighter. Spread some Christmas cheer and contribute to this cause.
