We need donations of all types of items, we cannot accept food or violent games. $25 Target Gift Cards are always needed as well. Bring your new, unwrapped item(s) to a collection box in the lobby of the elementary schools between December 5-8.
Pierce Families Helping Families: Each year, our school counselors identify Pierce families in need and collect gift cards to be distributed to them for the holidays. If you are interested in supporting this effort, please bring your gift card donation to the main office at Pierce by December 16 and deposit it in the sealed box located in the front office. We recommend gift cards to Star Market, Shaws, Stop & Shop, Target, and Old Navy, but we will, of course, accept gift cards from all stores.
