How You Can Help

Donations

Click the DONATE HERE button above to become part of the Granite Falls School District’s 2020 Food & Gift Drive! From there, you can book a Ticket of Love in Action! (Your ticket is actually your cash donation!) Through your generosity, the GFSD Food & Gift Drive will change the lives of families throughout our community. More families than ever before will need our help this winter. Thank you for joining this life-changing and amazing event! We have a minimum $5 donation.

The Giving Tree

If you would like to buy gifts for a child in need, you can pick up a Giving Tree tag at your child’s school or contact us (click here). You can adopt individual children or an entire family. Each tag has the child’s age, gender, and wish list printed on it. Possible wish list items include toys, clothes, and shoes.

If you do choose to participate in the Giving Tree, you will need to return all gifts unwrapped with the tag attached by Friday, December 11th, 2020.

Please if you have any questions, contact our Food Drive Giving Tree Coordinators, Kaitlyn Cramer at fooddrive@gfalls.wednet.edu, or Olivia Harmon at fooddrive@gfalls.wednet.edu

OTHER:

Here are a few more ways to help:

  • If you’re a high school student, you can talk to your third-period teacher about signing up for one of our grocery store collection times. There will also be opportunities for students to earn community service hours by doing things like moving donated food to where we need it. Contact Mr. Dinwiddie or Mrs. Sullivan or a Food Drive Coordinator for more information.
  • If you’re a business, you can allow students to stand outside of your store and ask people for donations.
  • Spread the word! The more people that know about our food drive, the more successful we will be in reaching our goals.
  • Visit our social media accounts for regular updates on events and how our food drive is doing this year!
