Kids in Crisis

It is that time of year when we start receiving requests to help our Westfield Families with gift cards. This program helps the counselors give baskets at the holiday times to families in need as well as helping individual students who are in crisis. Please consider helping with a donation of a gift card or two. Please keep the cards to balances of 25.00 or less and from stores like Walmart, Shoppers, Target and Giant. Many of our children don’t have access to cars and need to walk to the stores. Please send the cards in to main office with attention Meg Crossett on the envelope. Thank you in advance for supporting our families in need in the Westfield Community.
