On December 20th, in partnership with UCSD Hospital staff, Mission Hills Music and Canale Comm, the Grant PTA distributed over $25,000 in gifts and gift cards to 18 Grant families that touched 90 people. We had over 100 generous donors provide the needed funds and gifts to make these families lives a bit better.
Residual funds collected after 12/20 will be provided to our Grant counselors to use on an emergency basis to help families in crisis meet their needs.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!
2020 has been a rough year (and that's an understatement). A global pandemic has resulted in unprecedented economic loss for so many -- and our Gecko community is no exception.
More than a dozen Grant families are in critical need of our help this holiday season. They're in need of basic necessities like food, gas, blankets, shoes and personal items. And like all of us, they want to make their children's holiday season special.
At Grant TK-8, we're a family -- and we take care of our own. If you're searching for a meaningful way to give back as 2020 draws to a close, we invite you to join us in our Geckos Share the Love Initiative.
Our goal was simple: to raise $7,000 to provide our neediest families with food, necessities, and gifts to make this season merry and bright.
Since this initiative began a few weeks ago, our amazing community has donated over $22,000 for our families. Prior to Thanksgiving, we were able to give our families each $750 in Visa gift cards for food and supplies. Many of the families have also been adopted by individuals and organizations and will receive additional necessities and some holiday gifts. However, we will still do more to ensure these families have the resources they need to make it through the holidays.
