5th Grade Toy & Gift Card Drive for foster youth
Thu, Dec 8 1:36pm

Join Mr. Bjorngjeld's 5th grade class and other Hacienda staff in supporting fostered youth in the Bay Area this holiday season.


Starting today through Friday, December 16th we are collecting new unwrapped toys and gift cards to donate to Pacific Clinics foster care families. We are especially seeking gifts and gift cards for the teen population who often get forgotten in toy drives. If you and your family would like to donate a green bin is set-up in the cafeteria for gift drop off.

Thank you.

-Mr. B
