Season of Giving


Once again, Roosevelt’s Student Council is participating in the UCAN Holiday Gift Drive. Earlier today, each classroom teacher received the wish lists of two needy children in the Chicagoland area. UCAN has made every effort to match the ages of the needy children to the ages of the students in each class. The students are being asked to earn money by doing chores or helping around their neighborhood. Any money earned will be used to purchase the gifts on a child’s wish list. Teachers will collect the money and give the money and the list to their classroom’s Room Parent who will then purchase the gifts.

Student council is also sponsoring a coat drive. There will be collection bins throughout the school.

There will also be a canned food drive starting Nov 11-Dec 13 with all food collected supporting the Maine Food Pantry.
