Operation: Christmas Wishes!
To start off the holiday season with some warm-fuzzies, we present the 2nd Annual Operation: Christmas Wishes! The Knuth Family Foundation has collaborated with Mrs. Clarks' Advanced Algebra class at Brighton High School to bring back the magic of Operation: Christmas Wishes.
Mrs. Clarks’ Room is home to 22 Advanced Algebra students who will be granting the Christmas wishes of 375 preschool, kindergarten, and first graders! Together we have selected a Title I school in Washtenaw County. A Title I designation is given to schools with a student base where at least 40% come from low-income families. At this particular school 90% of the families are low income, 10% are homeless.
We have budgeted $35 for each child to grant a wish off of their Christmas wish list. $35 sounds small, right? But when you multiply it over 375 students, we need to raise $13,125. We know your hearts want to help as much as ours, so please donate to bring Christmas to 375 children in Washtenaw county. We know it’s a busy time of year for all, but these children have less hope than most this time of year. Please donate by 12/13 so we know how much we have to spend per child. Santa's elves are delivering gifts to the kids on 12/17.
