Great-Hearted Opportunities

Good evening Archway Lincoln families. Part of the mission of Great Hearts is to be great-hearted. To give of yourself to others. To participate in your community. Over the next few weeks, there are two opportunities for you to give back.

Food Drive

food driveThis Thursday evening at the School Concert, we will be collecting canned goods on behalf of Ms. Blasi. All food will go to the Rio Vista Center in Phoenix. There will be bins in the gym where you can put your donation.

Ms. Blasi asks that children from each grade donate specific items:

  • Kinder — boxed mashed potatoes and/or gravy
  • 1st — boxed pumpkin bread mix and/or canned pumpkin pie mix
  • 2nd — canned cranberries
  • 3rd — canned vegetables
  • 4th — boxed stuffing
  • 5th — boxed cake mix and/or boxed cornbread mix

Please drop your item in the corresponding bin to help keep everything separate. Thank you in advance for your donations!

Feed My Starving Children

fmsc-logoThis organization, based in Mesa, puts together dry food packages for malnourished children in over 70 countries. Great Hearts has participated in this event in the past. It’s a very humbling and gratifying event.

Our FMSC event is on Saturday, December 12th from 2-4 p.m. Registration is limited to 100 spots, first-come, first-serve, and there are restrictions regarding child participation (age and parent/child ratio).

Please see the Sign-Up Genius to view more information and to register. If you are unable to participate this December, we will be hosting another FMSC event in the spring.

Thanks to great-hearted families like yours, others less fortunate will have food on their table and in their bellies this holiday.
