The Osprey clan is sponsoring their annual needy family support drive throughHopeLink. We’re hoping you can help out and thank you in advance for your support! Here’s a description ofitems you can donate and information about HopeLink. Food: During the winter holiday season, HopeLink food banks provide extra foods so families can have holidaymeals together. They are most in need of nonperishable staple foods to make sure all families have nutritious,well-balanced diets. Gifts: HopeLink's Holiday Gift Rooms help make memorable holidays for families who are struggling just topay the rent and put food on the table. At each of the six HopeLink centers, Gift Rooms are filled with newtoys and gifts for children, from infants to teens, sorted by type and age group. Parents and grandparents aregiven points based on their family size, and choose toys, clothing and other gifts given by donors like you. Thissystem allows adult family members to select gifts they knew their children need or want — and they get tobe the "giver" in the child's eyes. Sturdy Cardboard Boxes: The Osprey clan will need many sturdy boxes for the collected materials. If you havemedium or large boxes we can use, please send them in.Donations for the Gift Room should be new, unwrapped gifts. In addition to gifts for infants, toddlers andchildren, there is always great need of gifts for teenagers, who often get overlooked at this time of year.Please see the detailed lists of suggested food and gift items below.We’ll also need several parent volunteers with vans or SUVs to transport the collected items to Hopelink’sKirkland Center (near A.G. Bell Elementary) on the afternoon of Wednesday, 12/13. Please email Brian Healy([email protected]) if you can help!The Holiday Drive will run Thursday, December 7th – Wednesday, December 13th.
