Gift Cards Needed
Wednesday, December 12, 2018 8:00 AM

With the winter break just around the corner, Page's social workers are holding a gift card drive to help our students and families.

Gift cards help struggling families with the holidays and beyond. We would love to have gift cards on hand to distribute where help is most needed. In particular, gift cards from the following stores would be most useful: SuperAmerica (now Speedway), Cub, Walmart, and Target. We’re especially in need of gas cards (e.g. SuperAmerica/Speedway), but any cards in any amount are welcome!
If you have gift cards you'd like to donate to this cause, please drop them off with Cassie Zonnefeld (room 105C), or in the main office.
