In addition to our 2nd Annual Holiday Toy Drive we will also be making fleece tie blankets. Both projects will benefit the children at Phoenix Children's Hospital.Toy DriveWe will be holding our annual Toy Drive from December 1st to December 13th.We will have a donation collection box in the front office at Cooley.We are asking the students, teachers, staff, and families to donate new unwrapped toys this holiday season. As a club, we will be kicking off the toy drive by purchasing $200 in toys on behalf of Cooley Middle School.We hope that with school-wide support we can collect more than 200 toys this year!Fleece Tie BlanketsOur amazing NJHS students voted to spend club funds to purchase $200 of fleece fabric to start off our Tie Blanket making efforts. With this money we were able to purchase over 30 yards of assorted single-color fleece. We are asking that students interested in creating blankets bring in 1 to 3 yards of a patterned fleece (polka dots, designs, characters, etc.) to make a blanket or blankets for young kids, children, and teenagers (1yrd, 2yrd, and 3yrd pieces of fleece).
Note: According to Phoenix Children's Hospital there is a big demand for blankets for teenagers.We will be making our tie-blankets on campus the week after the Thanksgiving break, date is still TBD.If you have any questions about our Holiday Service Projects, please contact Ms. Alexander.
