Faculty, Staff and Students have multiple ways in which they can support their community during the holiday season:

Student Council Winter Clothing Drive.

U-32 Student Council is organizing a Winter Clothing Drive! There will be a TA competition held from Monday, December 12th through Friday, December 16th. The TA that collects the most clothes will win pizza! The drive will continue into Saturday, December 17th for the rest of the community. From 9-11 am, on Saturday, community members are encouraged to drop off clean clothing: jackets, shirts, pants, gloves, hats, etc. Then from 12-3, all are welcome to come and choose from the free, donated clothes. Leftover clothing will be donated to the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program and the local Goodwill Store.

Giving Tree - Faculty & Staff

The holidays are coming and we are once again sponsoring the U-32 Giving Tree.  For the past two years, we have asked adult TAs for to offer suggestions of students in need, this year we asked parents/guardians directly .  At the beginning of December, a tree was placed in the mailroom with stars listing U-32 students’ needs/wishes.  Faculty and staff have been invited to take one of the stars to fulfill a wish.  

Toy Joy

U-32 is accepting donations of gently used toys, puppets, games, puzzles, books etc to Toy Joy. Collection boxes are located in the atrium by the Kiosk, on the second floor by top of atrium stairs, and in the Middle School outside Amy M's office.  In the past we have filled the pickup truck, please help us stuff the truck again this year.  All items must be collected by 7:45am on Friday Dec 16.  After TA on Dec 16 all toys will be delivered in hopes of bringing some holiday joy to those who depend on this annual, wonderful, service project.
