'Tis the Season of Giving

Each year Garrison Mill families generously support the Star Giving Tree. This annual drive collects needed items for children of families from Milford Elementary School, Lassiter High School, AND Garrison Mill. Because of your generosity, we’re able to provide for families that are often homeless, transient, or in need.
How else can you help? If you know of companies, organizations or groups that would be willing to donate gift cards or sponsor a child or family, please contact Heather McKelvey at heather.m.mckelvey@gmail.com. Thank you for sharing with our neighbors in need!
10/30 Star Giving Tree Forms go home
11/13 Students choose an item in the  price range that they would like to buy for a child in need
12/4 - 12/6 Wrapped gifts are due back to Garrison Mill
