Please join us as we help make Christmas brighter for the children who are in the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center!
According to the Children’s Center, there are two age groups that are typically overlooked when people make donations: babies and teenagers. That’s where TSCA students can make a difference!
Beginning on November 21st and continuing through December 16th, we’ll be collecting NEW Christmas gifts for the children who will be spending Christmas in the hospital. Please place your UNWRAPPED gifts in the boxes near the office.
Students in K3 – grade 5 are asked to bring a gift for a baby.
Students in grades 6 – 12 are asked to bring a gift suitable for a teen.
If gift cards are given, please place them in an envelope before dropping them into the box.
By working together and remembering the true spirit of Christmas,
we can make this a brighter holiday for those who cannot be at home with their families.
Thanks for Helping!
