Volunteer for Holiday Hoopla

Holiday Hoopla

Friday, December 14

On a piggy bank budget ($0.25 per item) our children can shop for gifts for parents, grandparents, siblings and loved ones of all ages. But we need your help!

Suggested items include accessories, like scarves, purses, belts and jewelry. Check around your home or work for reusable toys, books, games, DVDs, CDs, holiday decor, kitchen items, gardening supplies, craft supplies. Gifts for Dads/Grandpa are often hard to find, so consider things that might work for them.

We can NOT accept donations of clothing or food.
We also are in need of gift wrap, gift bags, ribbon, and tags.

The day of Holiday Hoopla, please have your child bring a bag to put their gifts that they will purchase for family and loved ones. Our volunteer’s will help them wrap the gifts. Each item is a $0.25. Please have your child bring a list of family members’ names and enough money for each gift.

It takes a lot people to sort the items, help our kids shop, and then wrap the gifts. Please use the Sign Up Genius to volunteer!

A Note from our Librarian

There are not enough words to thank you for your generous donations at the school auction to help keep our school library a strong resource for St. Al’s. We are very excited to purchase many, many of the books the kids have requested and to add current works to our catalog. Plus, we can’t forget about the oh-so-important supply of book repair tape! Thank you and God bless you all for allowing us to continue to promote literacy and community at St. Alphonsus.

(Keep an eye on this spot for an update on our first wish list treasures!)

Guess what? We don’t only need new books in the library! If you have gently used children’s books that you no longer need at home, please consider donating them to our library. Look for the library book donation box near the school office. Questions about what we’re looking for? Email Melissa Rodriguez-Murphy at [email protected].
