Glendale Elementary School District (GESD) employees and community donors helped to make wonderful holiday memories for 200 GESD kids from 51 families.
This was the largest ever reach achieved for the annual GESD Adopt-a-Kid campaign.
Donors from the Glendale community included Bears & More, Christ’s Church of the Valley (CCV), the Glendale Fire Department, Kiwanis Club of Glendale, and the PURE Youth Arizona Chapter.
GESD’s Adopt-a-Kid campaign helps to ensure families celebrate the holidays with gifts and necessities. The children were recommended by GESD’s Family Advocates, Refugee Family Services, McKinney-Vento Program, and Social Workers.
Families were invited to a curbside pick up of the gifts at the GESD district office before the winter break.
