It is now that time of year where our giving can be even more impactful to many of our families here in Forsyth County. We started off strong with our donation of 546 boxes of cerealto The Place of Forsyth for our Thanksgiving Holiday Food Drive.
As turkeys turn to ham, it’s time to make that transition from giving thanks to giving holiday cheer. Each year The Place of Forsyth - Holiday House distributes over 22,500 new toys and bicycles to provide holiday joy to over 2,000 children and their families.
From now till Friday, December 13th, South Forsyth High will be conducting a Toy Drive for The Place, and collecting NEW TOYS (FOR AGES NEWBORN TO TEENS), NEW & SEALED ROLLS OF WRAPPING PAPER, and GIFT CARDS for stocking stuffers.
Each grade level will battle against one another in friendly competition. The grade level who collects the most toys by the December 13th deadline will win a movie, served with Kona Ice and free pizza from Mellow Mushroom during one of the IF days held in January. The IF teachers of the winning grade will earn a dress down week for January, and a dress down week for February.
Here are a few housekeeping items to keep in mind:
Each IF teacher is responsible for the collection of toys and gift wrapping paper for their IF class.
Every 5 rolls of gift wrapping paper = the credit of 1 toy.
Each gift card = the credit of 1 toy.
Gift cards can only be turned into your grade level administrator during lunch.
Thank you in advance for your gift of kindness, and for helping to make the holidays a more joyous occasion for members of our community. Our school's donations truly make a difference and have a great impacton many families!
