Thankful November Project

Early Childhood and Elementary Classrooms are going to collect food and hygiene items in the Month of November for Spartan Food Pantry. Help us stock the food pantry with their needs for our Thankful November Mission. We would love it if your family or student would collect items below and bring them into bins located outside the front office. We also would love it if you could fill out our “what are you thankful for” leaf, for our school wide Thankful Tree! 

Some things the Pantry has highlighted as need are the following:

  • Deodorant
  • Toothbrushes
  • Bodywash
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Baby Wash
  • Baby Wipes
  • Diapers
  • Paper Towels 
  • Toilet Paper 
  • All sizes of ziploc bags

If you have any questions, please reach out to Niamh Welp at nwelp@syc427.org
