Help With Silent Auction

Each year at the end of November a small but mighty team of parents pull together an EPIC online silent auction! Each year we raise almost $5000 BUT we can’t do it with out you!!!

 

Donations:  Do you know someone who might like to display their company or product to our community? Would you like to give back to our school by donating an item to the event? This is an incredible opportunity to promote your business to the Essex Community and support our fundraising efforts. We will be promoting them on our blog and promoting it on social media! If you would like to donate please get in touch with Allison Venditti – Allison.venditti@gmail.com to organize a donation.

 

Virtual Volunteers: Interested in helping out at the school but just don’t have a lot of time? Want to help out at one of our biggest fundraisers of the year without having to commit to lots of hours? Have 10 minutes to ask for a donation at a local business? Know a family or friend who would like to donate? GREAT! We have a donation request letter – so all you need to do is just hand them them the letter!!

Contact Allison.Venditti@gmail.com to see if there is a way for you to help out!

Support for Syrian Refugee Family

Dear Essex families

As many of you are aware, Essex and Hawthorne  schools sponsored a Syrian refugee family two years ago.  The Khouja-Breim family have recently welcomed a new addition to their family – a baby girl, Areen.

A group of Hawthorne and Essex families continue to support the Khouja-Breim family.  The father continues to struggle to find sufficient work to support his family.

We are asking families to contribute a little something to help the family with the new baby and to feed everyone.

We are collecting diapers (size 1 and up), baby wipes, and Gift cards to Freshco, Rexall, and Shoppers Drug Mart.

Families can also make a small donation through GoFundMe.

The family also needs a baby bath if anyone has one to donate.

Thank you for all your help,

The Sponsorship Team.
