"Y" Cabinet Thanksgiving Service Project


Grades > 9-12

It is that time-- we have 1 week left till Thanksgiving and starting Monday we will collect items for the “Y” Cabinet Thanksgiving Service Project. This year, we will be collecting supplies for our students to distribute during their trip to the Dominican Republic over Thanksgiving Break. Please give the supplies you bring in to your adviser. On FRIDAY bring the supplies collected to Mrs. Inman's office, in Wilcox, with the adviser's name labeled on the bag by the end of office hours.

For Freshman and Sophomores to collect

- Notebooks

- Boxes of pencils

- Boxes of colored pencils

- pencil sharpeners

- sets of pens

- erasers

For Juniors and Seniors to collect

- bars of soap

- toothbrushes

- tubes of toothpaste

- travel sized shampoo

- small hand towels

- bottles of hand sanitizer

Again, all supplies must be received by the end of office hours on Friday, November 16. Advisee groups that have full participation will receive a free dress day sometime after Thanksgiving Break.

Summary of the trip plus the importance of the supplies, by senior Aaryn Ijames:

While in the Dominican Republic, our group will be helping support the Haitian communities that are experiencing extremely low living conditions. We will be building aqueducts to provide more than 1,400 people in these communities with running water as well as laying cement floors in homes to improve the community's quality of life. The kits are essential to provide the children with school supplies that are otherwise unavailable to them as well as providing hygiene products that they are unable to attain in the Dominican Republic.

Stuffed with Love


Grades > Pre-K to 8

Remember we are collecting gently used stuffed animals from November 7th - November 15th to pass out to needy children at the Love Feast Thanksgiving Day. There are many children in Rome who need a new friend to love on. Your gently used stuffed animal could bring them a lot of joy and let them know that we care about them. Our goal is to collect 500 stuffed animals. If we make our goal, we will have a dress down day on Friday, November 16.
