When Do Kids Look Forward to Going to School?
When it’s for the 12th Annual Community Youth Holiday Event at Sarah J Anderson School (2215 NE 104th St, Hazel Dell)! The party will be Thursday, December 16, 2010 at Sarah J. Anderson Elementary School between 6pm and 8pm, and will have gifts and activities for kids, photos with Santa, refreshments, and a chance to win a bicycle or a decorated tree! This is a free event, and no RSVP is required, just bring the kiddos and come join the fun!
Volunteers have been working very hard to make this year’s party special! Last year about 665 kids came out and had a great time, and the coordinators are planning for about 700 this year!
It’s not too late to help! Volunteers are needed for wrapping presents Thursday, December 9th from 4 pm to 7pm at Sarah J Anderson in the Art Room. The biggest need, however, will be on December 16 to help get everything set up. The party starts at 6pm, but volunteers do not have access to the school until 4pm. If you can help with either (or both) of these, please contact Bud Van Cleve, President of the Northeast Hazel Dell Neighborhood Association, at 360-695-1466, or email [email protected]
Donations of cash and gifts are still needed to help make this a magical event for kids in our community. Also, new socks and underwear are always needed for the foster kids program and can be dropped off at the party, or at the Burgerville on the corner of Highway 99 and 99th Street in Hazel Dell.
Many thanks to our generous community partners: Hewlett-Packard, Burgerville, McDonald’s, Altrusa Organization, Yard N Garden, Walmart, Hazel Dell/Salmon Creek Business Association, Vancouver School District and Sarah J. Anderson PTA.
Also a shout out to all the co-sponsors of this event: the NE Hazel Dell Neighborhood Association, the West Hazel Dell Neighborhood Association, the North Salmon Creek Neighborhood Association, the Felida Neighborhood Association, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Clark County Fire District 6.
