The Giving Tree 2020

Dear Wildcat Mountain Community,
In the past, our school has adopted numerous families in need for the holidays. This year we are continuing with this tradition, but doing it pandemic style! As a school, we are planning on helping out FOUR families who are in need of everyday items, as well as a few wish list items. We are going to do all our purchasing through Target and Amazon gift cards.

Directions on participating:
1) Here are the links to the cards – Target Gift Card.  Amazon Gift Card
You can donate as little as $5.00 or as much as you want. 

2) The recipient of the gift card is Julianne Clay and you will need to provide her email

3) Please put Wildcat Mountain Elementary in the “your message” box.
*All the money raised will go directly to our families and their needs and wants, which will be purchased by the coordinator, Juli. (She will be providing receipts).

**The last day to donate will be Dec. 14 so Juli has time to purchase the family’s wish list items.  

This year has been difficult for all of us but I am hopeful that the gift of giving to those less fortunate will lift all of us up.
Thank you!
