The Knuth Family Foundation collaborated with Mrs. Grills’ Advanced Algebra class at Brighton High School to create Operation: Christmas Wishes, an opportunity to give to children from lower income families and giving you an opportunity to give in the Season of Giving!
Mrs. Grills’ Room, B13, is home to 28 Advanced Algebra students who will be granting the Christmas wishes of 349 preschool, kindergarten, and first graders! Together we selected a Title I school in Washtenaw County. A Title I designation is given to schools with a student base where at least 40% of students come from low-income families.
A Christmas they won’t forget
$30 is budgeted for each child to “grant a wish” from their Christmas list. Anyone can partner with us in gifting hope and a Christmas wish by donating to this cause, bringing Christmas to 349 children in Washtenaw county, Michigan.
Donations will be accepted until 12/14.
“Santa’s elves” will deliver gifts to the kids on 12/17.
Donations were collected via a Gofundme page or donations made here through our website. If you’re making a donation through our website, please note: “Operation: Christmas Wishes” in the message section.
Together, we raised $10,860 in 15 days. Purchased, wrapped and delivered 349 gifts to young students.
You should know, of these 349 kids, 100% of the families are low income and 10% are homeless.
