Each month our association chooses a charity or organization of some sort to make donations to. If you have an interest in helping choose an organization or charity, please contact our Community Service Chair, Erin Arena. Here is a list of our upcoming months:
NOVEMBER 2018 - LET'S DONATE BLOOD
DECEMBER 2018 - TOYS, TOYS, AND MORE TOYS
Our vision: A world where children realize their full potential.
Our mission: Building bridges to success for children.
Our common bond: Caring – Integrity – Respect – Commitment – Leadership – Excellence
CHS leads the way in developing and delivering solutions that drastically change life trajectories for children and families. We’re different because we invest in lasting solutions, not short-term fixes. We empower children and families to cross bridges that lead to success. At CHS, we are reimagining the future of foster care. We’re creating a world where children are safer — where they don’t enter foster care in the first place. We’re addressing the root causes that lead to dangerous situations … and we’re implementing one-of-a-kind solutions that will change the future for children, families and communities.
PLEASE BRING YOUR TOY DONATIONS TO THE HOLIDAY PARTY ON DECEMBER 5, 2018.
WISH LIST ITEMS: Donations of art supplies and new or gently used toys for sand tray work or play therapy are always needed. Specifically, we need miniature characters & figurines (army men, animals, little people etc.), puppets, and dolls.
PLEASE BRING YOUR DONATIONS TO THE STUART LUNCHEON.
FEBRUARY 2019 - BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION FOR A LOCAL SCHOOL
It all started in California in 1996. General Mills wanted to create a program to help support education and benefit America’s schools – and so, Box Tops for Education™ was born. As part of the initial test program, Box Tops were only available on select Big G cereals, such as Cheerios™, Total™ and Lucky Charms™. The program was such a huge success that it soon launched on other General Mills products and expanded across the nation. By 1998, more than 30,000 schools were clipping Box Tops and earning cash to buy the things they needed: books, computers, playground equipment and more. Over the next four years, the Box Tops for Education™ program doubled to include brands such as Pillsbury™, Old El Paso™ and Green Giant™. By 2004, over 82,000 schools across the nation participated in Box Tops, earning more than $100 million.
In 2006, for the first time, non-food brands began to participate; now families could clip Box Tops from Ziploc®, Hefty®, Kleenex® and Scott® products, too. As the program expanded, school earnings increased. By 2010, schools across the nation had earned over $320 million. Today, America’s schools have earned over $868 million, and you can find Box Tops on hundreds of products throughout the grocery store and online.
