November & December ~Season of Giving 

Crissman Student Leaders Reach Out

Hats for Helping!
November 27th - December 8th

This year, The Student Council is collecting canned for the Shelby Lion's Food Drive and new toys for Toys for Tots.  Any student who brings in a canned good or an unused toy will be allowed to wear a Hat for Helping on Friday December 1st or Friday December 8th. Bring in two canned goods or unused toys and wear a hat both days!! Hats must be baseball or fashion hats – NO CRAZY HATS!



Holiday Food Drive

This year we will be collecting canned food, soups, fruit, dry goods, etc. to be donated to the Shelby Lions who will distribute it to needy families. Boxes to fill with goodies will be located in the lobby.

Toys for Tots

Children who are not as fortunate to have presents to open under a tree will benefit from our Toys for Tots collection. Toys for Tots is sponsored by the United States Marine Corps. We will be collecting new unwrapped toys for two weeks beginning November 27th. The last day for the collection will be Friday December 8th. There will be a box in the lobby where the toys can be dropped off. The toys should be in their original box or package. Large or small, every toy collected will bring a warm smile to many boys and girls this holiday season

Let’s make wishes come true this holiday season!
