November 15, 2018: Mary’s Place holiday gift drive

What can a tiny school with only 100 students do? We can be a force! In only five days our Tilden community removed all 100 giving tags from the Mary’s Place holiday gift drive display, plus there were additional cash and toy donations. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, TILDEN FAMILIES! Your generosity will warm many hearts of homeless children, parents, and grandparents in Seattle this holiday season. ♥

A huge shout-out to fourth-grade parent Carol Baltaxe for once again being the liaison between Tilden and Mary’s Place! She coordinated with Mary’s Place, delivered the gift tags to Tilden, and hauled all your cash and item donations to Mary’s Place, and she did it all with a smile! 🙂
