PROJECT WEE CARE @ HIGHLANDS
Project Wee Care will be kicking off it's first collection of the school year this week, September 19th - October 4th!
Project Wee Care is a program that is brought to local schools through the Samaritan House with the help of students, parents, and staff. This program teaches young children about the meaning of giving and helping others in need by allowing them an opportunity to give donations of goods. We will have 4 collections over the course of the school year. We hope that you will consider allowing your student this wonderful growing opportunity while helping those who are less fortunate.
Our first first collection for PWC, Highlands will be providing baby items for families in need. We are requesting donations of: BABY ITEMS - Diapers, wipes, formula, and baby food.
If you are able, please have your student deliver donations to the BLUE Wee Care/Samaritan House bins located in the hallways around school.
Thank you for your generosity!
