We are also looking for donations and treats that our kids would like - anything from snacks to Gatorades to school and art supplies, small notebooks, mini sports balls, etc. Since we have over 1,000 students, we need lots of rewards and anything is appreciated! If you or your business have something to donate, please reply to this email!
