Donations for Local Families!!

Throughout the school year, the Willard PTA will be collecting breakfast and snack items for local families.  Each month, we will reach out to a different grade for donations.  For the week of October 23 – October 27, we’re asking for donations from Kindergarten families.  If you are willing and able, please consider sending your kindergarten student with a new unopened package of any of the following shelf-stable items: instant oatmeal, breakfast bars, granola bars, shelf stable milk, raisins or other dried fruit, squeezeable apple sauce, fruit cups, and cereal.  Students can bring items to their teacher or to the front desk.  If you have any questions, please contact Willard parents, Jennifer Golem jengolem@gmail.com and Sarah Price sarahprice1119@gmail.com – Thank you everyone!
