In 2013, FOSW started the Holiday Giving Drive. The purpose of this program is to help students who may be in need of items for the winter season. Students in need submit a wishlist of items and parents are able to sign up to be matched with a child. In 2022, we were able to provide gifts of warm clothing, winter coats, shoes, books and educational toys to 20 Skinner Superstars.
FOSW makes an announcement for the Holiday Giving Drive on our Facebook page the week before Thanksgiving. There, you will find a SignUp Genius where you can view student wishlists and sign up to donate. Additional notices are sent via the school newsletter.
Parents who are in need of items for their children for the winter season can sign up via their homeroom teacher. Sign up sheets are given at Report Card Pick Up Day and sent home. Please complete the lists for your child and any siblings (who attend Skinner) and return to your homeroom teacher.
Because we have so many students we need to match with donors, the Holiday Giving Drive is only open to students who attend Skinner.
As hard as we try, we cannot guarantee that your child will receive every item on their wishlist. We are not able to purchase additional items or change what has been donated to you. Thank you for your understanding.
