Each homeroom at GCMS has adopted a family for the holidays. In total, our school has adopted 14 families from St. John’s Church in Newark. For a list of homerooms and their associated families, click the headline. Each family is in need of clothing and a toy or two for the children. Please remember the families do live in a shelter. Some homerooms are also collecting money for a visa gift card for the family, or snacks (i.e. goldfish, dried fruits, etc.) and toiletries to make baskets for the families. For a list of sizes and needs for each family click the headline. Please keep in mind when organizing for your family to remember to include wrapping paper, name tags, baskets, etc. Thanks for all of your help and support in making this possible for our adopted families!
