SNOWFLAKE GIFT CARD DRIVE FOR LJHS FAMILIES IN NEED
Starting tomorrow, November 6th, thru Friday, December 15th
LJHS counselors are collecting gift cards, cash or checks (made out to LJHS) to be given to our own LJHS families who are in need of a little extra assistance this holiday season. Gift cards for groceries, toys, restaurants, etc. are greatly appreciated! Fred Meyer and Target are especially helpful because they cover many different needs, but any others are accepted too, of course. Donations can be brought to the office and placed in the Snowflake Gift Card Collection Box. Questions? Please contact Marcy Watts at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
