Burke School Angel Tree

Friends of Burke School,
Thank you for supporting Burke School in the past.  Below you will find two links for our 2022 Burke School Angel Tree.  This year we have at least sixteen families with a couple more possibly.  The needs are very real as indicated by the request from the families for cleaning and hygiene supplies.  Lots of clothes too.  We usually supplement these requests with grocery cards, wrapping paper, and more generic gifts such as board games and books. 
 
You will find two links, a Sign-Up Genius and an Amazon link.  By utilizing the Amazon link, you can just click and pay.  The box will be delivered to a residence so evening and weekend deliveries can be brought inside.  We will arrange for the delivery of these items to the school. Any donations that you are buying personally on the Sign-Up Genius, please deliver them to the school as soon as possible, preferably before Friday December 10, so we have time to sort and deliver to the families before winter break, which begins on Friday, December 17, 2022. 
 
I encourage you to share these links with your friends, neighborhood, church and other organizations.  Many people are willing to give, they just don’t always know where to find who has a need.  Our families have needs.

Thank you and may you have a joyous holiday season. Please reach out to me if you have questions or concerns.
