Children's Charitable Projects for the Holidays

Our generous children have created several worthy projects to help their fellow man this holiday season. Please consider supporting one or all of these projects:


This drive is unique in that you can give a specific gift to a specific child right from their wish list.

The students of Teach and Bishop's Peak schools want all of us to think of the homeless children around us during the holidays.  When you are purchasing gifts for the children in your life, please consider also getting a gift for a homeless child.  Donations of new, unwrapped toys will be collected in the library after the Thanksgiving break.  You may choose to either give a specific gift to be matched to a child from their wish list or give any gift that you think a child might like.  If you choose to give a gift to a specific child, ideas from the children's wish lists will be available at the collection box.  Simply take the tag with the gift idea and attach the tag to the item when you leave it in the collection box.  All the donations for gifts remain local and go directly to children in need within our community.  The gifts will be distributed during the holidays to the children served by the Prado and Maxine Lewis shelters and to the children identified as being in need within San Luis Coastal Unified School District.


The Bishop's Peak Student Council is doing a food drive for their Community Service Project.  They have two barrels at school, one in the library and one outside the office.  The last day of the drive will be December 16.  Most needed items:  canned fruits and vegetables, canned meat & tuna, canned soups, canned beans, peanut butter, spaghetti, dry cereal and rice.  Thank you for your kindness!


Students are collecting donations for Pacific Wildlife Care in Morro Bay.  If you would like to help, please put your donations in the dropbox in the library.  You could save an animal's life today!  Items needed are on the wish list on the donation box and at pacificwildlifecare.org.  Some suggestions are:  unsalted peanuts, old newspapers, soft, fluffy or fuzzy blankets and towels, Gerber baby food in these flavors:  chicken with chicken gravy or mixed vegetables.  Thank you for your kind support!

It's so nice to see our generous children take action in their community to better the lives of the less fortunate.  Please support them in their endeavors.
