Kenny Kares Giving Tree
Friday, November 21, 2014 1:20 PM

Dear Kenny Families, 


I am excited to announce Kenny School is unveiling a new family and community giving project. We will now have a Kenny Kares Giving Tree. Kenny Kares will help build our Kenny community and meet the needs of our students, families and staff. The tree symbolizes strength and growth, by giving we create a strong community allowing all to grow. On the Kenny Kares board (outside of the main office) there is a list of items currently needed. There is a place next to each item to sign up if you are able to donate the requested item. To make a request for a specific need, forms are available in the office. You can also sign up to donate an item or make a request for an item via our online forms. I have been working  closely with a few Kenny parents to get this project up and running. This would not be possible without their dedication, passion, compassion and energy.  Below you will find the web links to access the request form and donate form (which allows you to see the current items needed). I look forward to watching the positive impact this project will have on our awesome Kenny students and families.
