An Update from Burlington Central

posted Dec 6, 2018, 5:10 AM by Susan Gordon

Hello Burlington Central Families,

We are still collecting Toys for Rebecca’s Gift, our annual Toy Drive that we run for the Children’s Aid Foundation.  The box is filling up fast, but in this case, more is better! Please send any unwrapped gifts with your child to drop off at the main office!

We are halfway to our goal of collecting 30 new or gently used coats for the Coats for Kids campaign.  Coats of any size are accepted and will be distributed to families in our community through the Salvation Army.   Please help us meet our goal by donating today! The donation box can be found in the caf. The Coat drive will end on December 14th.
