JP's Annual Project CLAUS: Please help us ensure that every JP child gets a gift this holiday season!
Johnson Park Elementary

It's time for Johnson Park's Annual PROJECT CLAUS

 

In 1990, a group of Princeton moms founded Project CLAUS (Children Loved by Another Understanding Santa). The moms realized that, while their own children would be opening presents during the holidays, there were other children, a fewl blocks away, who wouldn’t be.

 

You can help! In 2019, JP’s Project CLAUS provided gifts for 98 children. Project CLAUS allows our community to provide a tangible example of love, and the project’s structure enables financially challenged parents to give gifts to their youngsters.

 

This year, JP will again be proudly partnering with JaZams. Our friends at JaZams will generously offer a 20% discount for any gift card purchased specifically for Project CLAUS. Very simply, a $30 gift-card purchase will carry a $36 value for the recipient.  We are also partnering with Walgreens who also offer a 20% discount for gift cards purchased so that for every $30 gift card, the recipient would be able to purchase for an amount of $36

 

Here’s how Project CLAUS works:

 

  • We have identified the number of families/children in need of assistance in buying a holiday present.  
  • Each youngster’s grade level is posted here on our Konstella sign-up, and a Secret Santa (hopefully, you!) will assist in purchasing a gift card for each child. We’ve created the sign-up so you’re able to purchase a gift card for someone in your child’s grade, if you wish. (We’ll keep each youngster’s identity confidential.)

 

  • Click on this link to donate towards the gift cards from JaZams or Walgreens:

  •   A member of the PTO will then purchase the necessary gift cards with your donations.  

 

  • We’ll distribute the gift cards to recipients’ parents so that the youngsters can assume the gifts their parents buy with the cards came from their own moms and dads or the big guy himself, Santa.

 

This initiative is a great way to launch the holiday season, make giving easier for our Santas, and bring smiles to our children’s faces. If you’re interested in participating in Project CLAUS by being a Secret Santa, please sign-up by selecting the child(ren). We’ll add new children daily, through Fri., Dec. 11th.

  

Thank you for helping to spread the magic of the holidays to JP’s children!

 

If you have any questions, please e-mail parent Lakshmi Kaylan at lpulagam@gmail.com.

 

Thank you JP!  

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Your JP PTO
