Dear Allenby families and community,
This year the ME to WE group is excited to creatively make an impact in our world. One of our first fundraisers will be a bake sale on Thursday, December 13, 2018, just a few weeks away! It will include a variety of baked goods, as well as a “guess the number of jelly beans in a jar” contest. All profits of this event will benefit families in need in Toronto. After the bake sale, we will be walking to Toys R’ Us to buy toys with the money we raised, then we will donate the toys we bought to the Chum City Christmas Wish.
We know this will be a great initiative for our community to support underprivileged children in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) during the holiday season.
What the Me to We group is asking from you is your support. If you would like to contribute baked goods to the sale, we would be very grateful. Please remember that Allenby is a nut-free school, so please ensure all items donated are nut-free.
In addition, if you have any gift cards, or any new, unwrapped toys, it would be amazing if you could donate them to our local initiative. If you are able to donate, it would be ideal if it is appropriate for the age of your child/the grade your child is currently in (note, you are NOT permitted to donate any toys that resemble any sort of weapon, or reference violence).
Any help would be greatly appreciated. All items can be brought to the office. The more items donated to the fundraiser, the better!
We hope you can help us out, and we’re sure the kids will love the gifts for the holidays!
Thanks for your support!
The Allenby ME to WE Team
