"Stuff a Backpack"
We are asking local organizations, businesses, and/or churches to please consider sponsoring a backpack for our "Stuff a Backpack" program that will go along with our Angel Tree.
The "Stuff a Backpack" program is exactly as it sounds... stuffing new backpacks with items that are genuinely a need for many students. The stuffed backpacks will be issued to any GHS student who is a recipient of the GHS Angel Tree. Any leftover backpacks will continue to be issued in the future through the GHS Comfort Closet. GHS is asking that the backpacks and all items inside to be new. A specific list of items to "stuff" is included below. Please add ONLY items specified in the lists to the backpacks.
Also, GHS is asking that backpacks NOT to be delivered by individuals to the school. Local businesses, organizations, and churches may bring their donated “Stuffed Backpacks” to GHS Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., now until 12 p.m., December 18.
If you are an individual in the community who would like to offer help during the holidays or anytime during the school year, GHS’s Comfort Closet is currently accepting donations for the following items: small individual containers/boxes of cereal, individually wrapped snacks such as PB crackers/cheese crackers, individual cups of microwavable Rice A Roni or Chef Boyardee or Mac & Cheese, jars of peanut butter, trail mixes, Pop Tarts.
