McKinley-Thatcher is excited to hold our annual December Food Drive next week from Wednesday, December 6 to Friday, December 8. Our food drive donations will be handed out to school families on Wednesday, December 13!
We are looking for donations of the following items:
Please check expiration dates on all donated food items!
Donations can be sent with your child or dropped off at the main office in your student’s grade donation box any day from December 6 to December 8! Gift card donations can be dropped off in our main office.
All items donated to our food drive will be sorted and packed into reusable grocery bags, then distributed to any McKinley family that would like to take food home for Winter Break! Food bags will be distributed on Wednesday, December 13 at 2:30pm on our playground. Any and all families are invited to take as many bags as they would like home with them on this day. We’ll also have food bags available for Discovery Link (DL) families when they pick up their students from DL.
We need volunteers to help sort, pack, and distribute donations!
The grade level that collects the most donations during the drive wins a special Wintertastic Popsicle Party from our PTA! (Our 4th and 5th grade classes will work together to raise donations for their combined grade levels.)
McKinley-Thatcher is not running our Adopt-a-Family assistance program this year. School families who are in need of assistance during winter break are encouraged to check out the following resources.
Please call our main office at (720) 424-5600 or email us at McKinley_Thatcher@dpsk12.org.
