Good Morning Waxpool Neighborhood Network,

If you still have items for, drop off, please let me know ASAP. Please either drop them by my house, send electronically or we can coordinate for me to pick up from you, then I will finish boxing them for distribution. Please let me know if you have any questions or if a donated item cannot be met, so I can make adjustments and/or reach out to other resources in the community if need be.

*****WAXPOOL FAMILIES****

Giving Tuesday...

Thank you for all of your support already this school year. As I mentioned previously, with all the provisions and restrictions this year for our current state of affairs I felt it best to keep everyone safe, as much fun as it is to shop and provide for our families in need this holiday season this way I see best -
For safety reasons, I have decided to just do a gift card drive this year rather than shop for specific wish list items. We would like to offer each family at least grocery gift card and store gift cards for the family (which includes all children under the age of 18) gift cards of their choosing. I sent out a form asking what type of gift cards the parents would like to have to shop for their family. You are always welcome, if you wish, to purchase an item for families as well, I am not discouraging this, but making the best effort to keep everyone healthy.
Below is the link to the WAXPOOL ES Sign-Up Genius. If you are able to help, please take a look at the requests. I have broken down the requests by family numbers.
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0b45a5aa28a1fb6-waxpool2

***Please as in the past list your family number on your gift item.***
There are several ways we can handle delivery of the gift cards:
You are welcome to send them direct to me: 19060 Arroyo Ter Leesburg, VA 20176
You are welcome to either Venmo or Paypal the amount you wish, and I will happily go purchase the gift card. Please reach out to me for my Venmo or Paypal information.
You are welcome to drop items off direct to my home.
If need be, I can pick up items direct from you with no person to person direct contact.
**Please have items in no later than Wednesday, December 16th**
**Gift Cards may be any domination you wish to donate**
Please contact me if you have any questions my email - [email protected] or on my Cell Ph 714-768-5070 (text message is best)
This will be sent out to our school Neighborhood Needs Network via email, Sign-Up Genius and posted on all of the neighborhood social media platforms, so you will probably be seeing it a lot in the coming days.
Please let me know if you have any questions. And thank you again so much for your ongoing support.
Don't miss the Waxpool Elementary School PTA Drive-Thru Spirit Night this Wednesday, Nov. 4 at Chick-fil-A Ryan Park!
We also have November's PTA Meeting that same evening.
