Community Christmas Gift Card Drive and Spirit Days

Gananda Central School District is PROUD to team up with the Macedon Community Christmas Program to help our local families in need. Our families are still in need of food and gifts for children and senior citizens, however, with Covid-19 again this year, gift cards are the safest way to help support families.

As such, we will be holding a Gift Card Drive from Wednesday, December 1 through Wednesday, December 8, 2021.  During this time we will be collecting any denomination of gift cards from Walmart or Target. Additionally, checks will be accepted in lieu of gift cards. Checks can be made out to the Macedon Food Pantry with "Christmas Program" noted in the memo section. 

Students and families can participate by bringing in a gift card/check on any day during the drive.  Elementary students can give the cards/checks to their home room teachers and secondary students can place them in a special box in the main office.  Staff can participate by dropping off gift cards/checks in the main office of each school building on the donation drive days.  

Additionally, if anyone would like to adopt an angel from the angel tree, please contact the Christmas Program Chair, Heather Keenan, at HKeenan@gananda.org. The angel trees provide specific requests for families and include items like: food boxes, $25 perishable food gift cards, $25 gift cards for 17-19 year olds and seniors, and gifts for kids 16 and under.

As we join together to support our community, we also invite our students and staff to participate in the following spirit days as a fun way to show our #Unity:

Wednesday, December 1Crazy Sock Day - wear crazy socks.
Thursday, December 2: Hat Day - wear your favorite hat.

Monday, December 6Red, Green, and Blue Day - wear Red, Green, and/or Blue
Tuesday, December 7Pajama Day - wear your pajamas or comfy clothing.
