Our very own Santa mailbox!

We recently discovered that one of our Youth Art students was the recipient of a wonderful trip from the Make a Wish Foundation when he was undergoing some treatment for a serious illness last year.  In return he is participating in the Make a Wish Foundation Santa letter writing campaign.

For every letter that Macy's Department Store receives between now and December 14th, they will donate a $1 per letter up to one million dollars to the Make a Wish Foundation!

Our student is creating a "Santa Letter Mailbox" and will bring it to the school after Thanksgiving Break. We will have it in our lobby as part of our Holiday Gift Gallery.  Let's help fill this box with either a letter written by a chid or adult. The theme is "I believe...."

According to our student's Mom...."Do you have a Macy’s near by? If so, please drop off a stamped letter to Santa before December 24th.

If not, We are collecting letters, and will turn them in to Macy’s. These don’t have to be from kids; They can be from adults as well, and don’t have to be “I want …” . They could be “I believe in kindness to all” The campaign is called “I believe”.

If you have access to groups of people who might be willing to write letters, please spread the word.
We are trying to spread the word, and get as many people to contribute as possible.
I can pick them up from you, any time before December 14th."

We think this is the perfect way to kick off the season of giving...we are open Monday-Friday, 8-4:30 p.m. (after Thanksgiving of course!) and will be open on Saturday, December 1st (The Greening of Coupeville) and Saturdays December 8th and 15th. Bring your letters by and shop at the same time!
