A BIG HUGE THANK YOU to all the families and students that donated to the Community Foxes collection drive for refugee families. Your donations and welcome cards will go to newly arriving families from Somalia, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Bhutan, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Eritrea. Most refugees re-locating to Colorado are women and children. It was a huge success, and we feel very proud and grateful to donate so many wonderful items to the International Refugee Committee (IRC) in Denver.
Toys, stuffed animals (many with home-made welcome tags to refugee children), books, puzzles, games, art and school supplies, science and art kits, a bike, clothes, home goods, and our wonderful and unique WELCOME CARDS. A big thank you to Ms. Arnow’s 5th Grade class for writing extra welcome cards.
Again – this community project was a big success and we should all feel very happy, proud and delighted by the quantity and quality of the donations. It is truly impressive. Thank you for all of you who spent your time and money to donate to the Community Foxes project this year.
