With last night’s announcement of MCPS closures starting Monday, March 16, we’re all working hard to figure out how to manage these next few weeks. The PTA would especially like to support our low-income families who will be hardest hit by this closure by providing them with donated gift cards for Giant grocery stores.
Anya Rebholz will be collecting donations of Giant gift cards and money for this effort. Physical Giant store gift cards can be donated in denominations of $20 or less (to allow them to be divided easily, as necessary). You can send money via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop money or Giant gift cards off in the mailbox at 14612 Antigone Drive (cash, or checks made out to Andrea Rebholz). Donations received will be divided among the families and distributed confidentially by the school staff. We’d like to distribute the first round of donations by Monday, if possible, and will send updates regarding how much we’ve collected every couple of days. Thank you for your support!
If you have any questions, or suggestions for other ways we can support our community in this stressful time, please let us know.
