TPS has a longstanding tradition to provide support to school families in need during the holiday season. For families that struggle to provide gifts for the children in their households, we work to provide each child (of any age in the household, whether or not they are enrolled at TPS) with “something to wear, something to read, something they want, and something they need.” And for those families struggling with food insecurity during the winter break, we work to provide them with resources to make sure that everyone is well-fed.
If you are a TPS family who needs this type of holiday support, please complete this form by November 9. We want to make sure you are on our list!
If you would like to help make our holiday drive a reality, here are 2 ways you can easily participate between now and December 9:
1) Purchase gift cards of any size from either Amazon or Target. Physical cards may be dropped off at the front office or mailed to us (349 South Walnut Street, Bloomington, IN 47401), and digital Amazon or Target gifts may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Physical Kroger cards may also be dropped or mailed (please note, we are unable to accept digital grocery gift cards, only physical ones - ideally in $25 increments).
2) If you are connected to a business, faith organization, social club or other individuals or groups in our community or beyond who you believe would be interested in learning more about our holiday drive and opportunities for participation, feel free to share THIS FLIER which explains the goals and options. Have them contact Ms. Amy to discuss possibilities!
