Ridgecrest PTA

Holiday Basket Food and Teen Gift Drive

What is the Holiday Basket Food and Teen Gift Drive?                            

In conjunction with the Shoreline PTA Council, schools across Shoreline donate food and gift items that are given to over 500 Shoreline families in need.  Boxes of food, paper goods, toiletries, toys and teen gift cards are assembled and distributed to families to assist during the holiday season.

When is it?

The Holiday Basket Food & Teen Gift Drive runs from December 6th through December 16th.  

Where do I drop off items?

Send your food or teen gift card donations to school with your student during this time period.  There will be a collection box located in each classroom.

What food items are needed?

Each Shoreline school has been assigned one item to focus on.  

This year, Ridgecrest’s item is GRANOLA / SNACK BARS.

In addition, there are many other items that will help our Shoreline families this Winter Break such as peanut butter, pasta, beans, canned items such as soup, vegetables, fruit and tomato products, hot & cold cereal, granola bars, and gluten-free items.

What types of teen gift items will be collected? 

Rather than soliciting teen gift items, we will be collecting gift cards ($15-$25) for teens & tweens between the ages 10-18 that need our support this year.  Fred Meyer, Target, Walmart, clothing stores, fast food, iTunes, and Amazon cards would be greatly appreciated. 

Is there anything I can’t donate?

Please do not donate food in glass jars or large Costco-sized containers.  (Multi-packs of an item from Costco are acceptable.)  Also, please check the expiration dates on your donated food items.  

Who do I contact if I want to volunteer during the drive or if I have questions?

Ridgecrest is a King County Green School
As a King County Green School, Ridgecrest Elementary encourages waste reduction and recycling in the lunchroom and classrooms. Students sort their lunch waste into recyclable materials (milk cartons/juice boxes, plastic bottles, and aluminum cans) and trash. Here are easy ways to make a waste-free lunch for your child: Pack only what your child can eat. Have your child bring home everything they don't eat so you can see what they are able to eat in a lunch period. Only pack a half-sandwich if that's all your child can eat during lunch. Use REUSABLE containers to pack the lunch. Use any ... read full article
