HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE

The Syre PTA Food Drive will start November 30th and run through December 11th this year. Our focus item is granola bars!! Other than granola bars, most wanted food items include:

peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, cereal (hot or cold), canned soup, pasta & rice, canned meats, ramen noodles, shelf stable milk, canned fruit/veggies, and canned tomato products.

We will also need your help collecting boxes! Please help us out by collecting boxes from your workplace, grocery store, etc and bringing them to the Syre office.

As part of the Holiday Baskets/food drive, the PTA will also help collect gift cards for teens & tweens ages 10-18.  Gift cards make it possible for kids to shop for exactly what they want! The goal is to provide at least one gift card for each teen.  Last year we provided for over 500 kids!   $15-25 dollar amounts work best.  Ask a teen what gift cards are popular this year!

In addition to donating a gift card directly, you may also help via monetary contributions: please make checks payable to Shoreline PTA Council 6.12 (note: “Holiday Baskets – Teen Gifts”) and mail to: Shoreline PTA Council 6.12 Attn: Holiday Baskets – Teen Gifts, PO Box 55832 Shoreline, WA  98155.

Or, donate via Paypal! Go to:  www.shorelinepta.com and click on Holiday Baskets.  Your donations to the Shoreline PTA Council, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, are tax deductible.

Thank you in advance for making our food drive/teen gift card drive a success!  Go, Wildcats!

 

CHINOOK BOOKS

Chinook Books are still available in the office.  They will also be for sale at the spaghetti dinner on Nov. 18.  Help raise money for Syre and save money with a great family friendly coupon book!
