Warm Up for Winter
It’s getting colder outside, so it’s time to help others in our community to stay warm. S.A.D.D. is beginning its annual “Warm up for Winter” campaign. Please donate hats, gloves and mittens, scarves, coats, and blankets. Don’t forget the animal rescue who can use dog and cat food and old towels and blankets. See the flyers in the hallways or Ms. Martin and Ms. Durst if you have questions.
