Thanksgiving Drive

Lilja will again be helping the Natick Service Council by sponsoring 20 Natick families in need for Thanksgiving.  Every year, the Natick Service Council donates the ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal to over 150 Natick families in need.  This is a wonderful way to teach our students what it means to be part of a community.  In the coming weeks, look for information from your class’ room parents.  We will be seeking donations of food, to be collected November 14 - November 22.  All donations will be delivered to the Service Council on Tuesday November 22.  If you have any questions please contact Michelle Ferretti at Thanks in advance for your generosity!
