Every year our school hosts an event for the holiday season to provide new gifts to children who may not be fortunate enough to receive them from friends and family. Our population at Brokaw Early Learning Center is extremely diverse and serves all PreK students in the surrounding communities. This event takes new toys donated from the community and allows families to purchase them for $2.00 each. It is an event that we have done for years and everyone truly looks forward to it, not only to give back, but to spread joy and happiness during the holiday season. Due to COVID-19, we are not able to host this event, but would still like to provide support for these families during this holiday season. This year, more than ever, we feel that help may be needed due to family members losing their jobs and having medical bills to pay. Please help us get some gifts into the hands of these families so that they can put a smile on the faces of their kiddos during this difficult and trying year. We would like to purchase gift cards for families so that they can shop for gifts their child will enjoy. We will make these gift cards available to families for a low cost so that they can give back to the school. All proceeds will go directly back to Brokaw Early Learning Center to help teachers buy supplies for their classrooms to benefit ALL students. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
