Holiday Hope Chest
Helping Keep Our Students Warm with Outside Clothing & Christmas Gifts
The Meridian School District Counselors, local Churches and organizations have partnered together to provide assistance in keeping District children warm this year by donating winter wear. The donated items will be new or gently used. The program implements an every-other year basis for coats, snow pants and boots. If you ask for assistance in 2019, you will be eligible again to ask for assistance in 2021 for coats, snow pants and boots. Please keep this in mind when filling out the form for your children. There are exceptions, i.e. growth spurts, etc. and these will be looked at by District School Counselors.
If you are interested in receiving assistance, please provide the information below and return to the School Counselor by Friday, October 18th. All requests for assistance will be kept confidential.
If you are needing help with Christmas gifts, families will need to sign up online through Ogle County Toys for Tots. Families will pick up toys in Mt. Morris at the Moose Lodge on Sunday, December 15th from 12pm-6pm. Registration for Ogle County Toys for Tots opens on October 1st and closes on December 1, 2019. Children ages newborn through 18 (still in High School) are eligible to receive gifts.

Please contact your child’s School Counselor or Stephanie Haugh at Monroe Center School with questions or if you need additional forms.
