Gifts are Great, Food is Essential
We are also collecting food and toiletry items to build “Bridge Boxes” of food for the winter break. Seventy percent of CVES students are provided with free and reduced lunch, and also receive breakfast at school. When school is not in session, many of them go without regular meals. Help us provide food security to these children with donations of food that are non-perishable, require minimum kitchen preparation, and can be eaten at room temperature.
Suggested food donations include: peanut butter, cereal, easy open pop-top canned pasta like Spaghettios and ravioli, mac and cheese, Hamburger Helper, dried pasta and canned pasta sauce, and single-serve fruit cups. Fry’s gift cards are also welcome, and will be used to purchase fresh bread, fruits, and vegetables. Toiletry items such as soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, and deodorant are also needed and appreciated.
About the S.S.O.S.
Empathy and compassion are important character traits and ones we all want to develop in our children. Sonoran Sky Opportunities to Serve is an SSKY PTO committee dedicated to the support of our Title I Sister Schools, Arrowhead Elementary and Cactus View Elementary. Both schools have a high population of homeless, foster, and disadvantaged students. These schools are six and twelve miles away from Sonoran Sky in the PVSchools district. Through projects like the Winter Giving Tree, Sonoran Sky students and their families work together to make the world a little brighter.
