Students and staff at Charles F. Patton Middle School collected new, unused, unwrapped gifts for people of all ages as part of their annual holiday Giving Tree program. The Giving Tree program has been a Patton school tradition for over 20 years. The nearly 1,000 gifts collected this year were delivered to the New Garden Township Building on Thursday, December 12th. There they will be distributed to families in need of some extra holiday cheer this season.
While at the township building, Patton students also helped fill 600 food boxes in preparation for the Kennett Area Community Services’ Christmas charity event on Saturday, December 14. Families in need of a little help this holiday season are invited to attend the event, choose gifts from the hundreds of donations, and take home a box of donated canned and fresh food.
