Mrs. Smith’s 3rd-grade art students are decorating gift bags to donate to Bright Blessings, a Matthews-based non-profit organization that provides birthday parties for homeless and impoverished children. As part of this project, we are seeking donations of new gift items that could be placed in the bags. Many of these items can be purchased at a dollar store.

Gift ideas:

books (especially preschool or high school level)
coloring books
coloring tools
card games
matchbox cars
water bottles
hair bows
small toys

Collection will take place from April 30 to May 11. Boxes labeled with Bright Blessings will be in the school lobby for drop-off.

Thank you so much for your support of this wonderful local charity!
