We Did It!!!

December 21, 2008
"Dear Fran,

Due to all of the snow and nasty weather, I really had to rush this past week to make sure that as many things as possible were able to go home with the kids. It was amazing that every time I was worried we might not have enough of something, the perfect amount would show up.

Last Tuesday, when the weather up here was bitterly cold (11 degrees with a wind chill of -2), I was able to divide up and give out all of the gloves. You and your amazing elves were able to collect enough gloves that not only all of the elementary students in grades K-6 got a new pair of gloves, but I was able to give out gloves to all of the Head Start students and to the middle school kids as well!

Then, on Wednesday when the weather was so bad that the kids had to be sent home after just 2 hours of school, I was able to give out a new hat to every student K-6 to help beat the cold. The box that you had ordered of hats arrived at just the right time. Now, when we do get back to school after the holidays, I will be able to pass out the rest of the new crayons, markers, and other gifts as a fun way to start the new year.

Again, thank you for all of your support and hard work to get these things for our students.
It really could not have come at a better time!
Happy Holidays!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You,
This would not have been possible without each and every one of you. I put 3 huge boxes in the mail today filled to the brim with gloves, hats, markers, crayons, coloring books. I spent your money to fill in any gaps for each grade level.
Every single child will receive gloves, hat and at least one other item.
(crayons, markers, coloring book, books)
As more checks arrive I will continue to order items the children need. I expect to be mailing another big box on Monday from Cedar Wood Elementary, the staff there helped out as well. You have made a lot of children very happy this year.

You did good!!!
