At McDowell, we are collecting donations for a group called Haven House. Haven House is a place for woman to go if they have been abused and need to leave. They take their children and the clothes on their backs. They need your typical everyday things such as toilet paper, tissues, cough drops, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, face wash, and chap-stick. They also need hats and gloves for winter along with cleaning supplies.
Haven House has moved their location. They have some supplies but not enough for all the women that are their. They ran out of room at their old location which is why they have moved. They need those supplies that I listed in my first paragraph. McDowell cares about our community, that is why this Christmas season we are not forgetting the meaning of the season, which is to give. To motivate us the teachers have decided that our lunch monitors will dress up as Santa and his helper. The students here at the McDowell have to collect 500 different donations in order to have Santa and his elf show up to school.
As you can tell Haven House needs some donations. Hopefully we can collect 500 donations to make Santa and his elf show up to school. We can give by donating an item on the list or by donating money. Anything helps and Haven House will be grateful for everything. Organize a donation for someone or someplace in your community to help out. This Christmas make sure you give as much as you get.
