gift drive highlight

with one comment

Each year my daughter’s school community adds more than 200 underserved children to the holiday shopping lists that have us searching all over North America for wonder pet ankle boots that don’t exist.

In a heartwarming display of generosity, our holiday gift drive culminates in a sea of wrapped toys, shiny new bikes and moms sorting gifts while trying to avoid pouring coffee down our red turtleneck sweaters, or worse, on the athletic center floor (grounds for expulsion at our school).

It’s such a joyous event brimming with the spirit of the season no one would ever suspect I yelled at the Starbucks barista this morning for running out of skim milk.

We also donate personal hygiene items for the grandmothers and other care providers of the children in the Guardian Ad Litem program to which the holiday gift drive benefits.

My personal favorite donation wasn’t hard to find. What was hard was deciding which lucky granny should receive this special gift.
