Walmart Gift Cards
This holiday season, we have a few FRES families in need. If you would like to, please consider dropping off a Walmart gift card to the front office anytime before December 15th. Ms. Norris is accepting Venmo donations also, if that is easier. Please Venmo her @MsAlyssaNorris

Cold Weather Clothes Drive
Some of our FRES families are in need of winter clothes, jackets, hats, and gloves. Please consider donating any cold weather clothes your children may have outgrown. Donations can be given to the front office, dropped off in the car loop, brought to a meeting or event, or given to our Spanish liaison, Ms. Paola.

Donations
The FRES PTA cannot say THANK YOU enough for all of your help in making the PTA events amazing this school year. As we approach Giving Tuesday, please consider donating to the FRES PTA, a 501c3 non-profit organization. A tax-deductible donation supports FRES PTA operations, and events. Many companies will match employee donations to different organizations; check with your employer’s HR before donating.

A check made payable to FRES PTA can be mailed or dropped off at the school. We appreciate your generosity this holiday season. If you would like to sponsor an event or item, please email contact@frespta.org.

Volunteer Opportunities!
Do you enjoy helping out and volunteering when you can but can’t make a regular, on-going, big commitment? We have opportunities for you! First, join the FRES PTA; visit https://frespta.ptboard.com to create a PTA account then select your membership (individual or family for two adults) from the “Forms & Payments” section. Then check out the listings already under “Volunteer Signups”! https://frespta.ptboard.com/sgnvw As a member, you’ll receive an email alert each time a new opportunity is posted.

From Bread of Life Food Pantry in Savage
Every month the Bread of Life Food Pantry, located at the First Baptist Church of Savage, serves an average of 30 families (112 individuals.)  As we draw closer to the Christmas Holiday Season, the Bread of Life Food pantry prepares to fill the shelves and refrigerators of the families that depend on school lunches as well as those that may not qualify for assistance. They are collecting non-perishable food items and toiletries that will be handed out to families each Thursday leading up to Christmas.  Items may be dropped off at First Baptist Church of Savage, 8901 Washington St, Savage, MD 20763, on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, 9:00-2:00.  Outside of these hours, arrangements can be made by calling (301) 725-3944.  View their flyer here.
