If you would like to participate, you may purchase a gift card in any denomination from one of the suggested stores (Target, Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, Kohls, Old Navy or American Express/Visa/Mastercard). All gift cards will be distributed by East School Adjustment Counselor Cathy Rein. Please send in gift cards with the student in an envelope with “Cathy Rein” written on the outside or drop off the envelopes in the East School office. Please send in envelopes by December 16.
