    Thanksgiving & Holiday Gift Drives


    Dear Encinal Families,


    Please join us in making sure all of our Encinal families have a memorable holiday season. Our goal is to provide each Caring & Sharing family with grocery gift cards for Thanksgiving and gifts for the children for the December holidays. We have over 65 Encinal students who benefit from our Caring & Sharing Program.


    Thanksgiving Drive


    How you can help for the Caring and Sharing Thanksgiving Drive UNTIL NOVEMBER 17TH:

    • Donate cash or check (any amount)
    • If writing a check or donating cash: enclose in an envelope with "Caring & Sharing" written on the front and deliver to the Front Office before Nov. 17th. Checks may be made out to the Encinal PTO with "C & S" in the memo.
    • Donate gift card(s) from either Safeway or Trader Joe's in any amount (our goal is to provide a $50 gift card to each family)
    • Please bring to the Front Office and before Nov. 17th
    • Donate via PayPal


    Thanksgiving gift cards will be distributed to families on November 20th.



    Holiday Gift Drive


    Our Holiday Gift Drive will begin December 4th. The Giving Tree will be in the Front Office- come pick a tag which will include gift requests for Encinal students and siblings. Please be sure to sign out your tag so we have your contact information.

    Please drop off purchased, unwrapped gifts to the front office between December 4 and December 15th. Cash donations are also accepted using the methods described above.



    Both drives are organized by the Caring & Sharing team; ALL funds received from these drives will support Encinal families. Questions? Please contact Marianne or Sherri at caringandsharing@encinalschool.com.
