Help in the Holiday Season

Help in the Holiday Season

It’s that wonderful time of year when families and loved ones gather together and celebrate many traditions. Although this time of year can be very happy for many people, it can be very difficult for families with not enough financial resources. We have many families right here in Lake Oswego who struggle to make ends meet each month. The holiday season only magnifies this situation. Each year, we collect gift card donations from generous families in our community. We are able to put these resources to good use by assisting our families in need here at Lakeridge Middle School. In the past, we have received enough donations to continue the assistance after the holiday season.

If you would like to donate a gift card, please turn it into the front office or drop them in the counselor’s boxes. We will be collecting gift cards from now through Monday, Dec. 16th. The counselors, Monica Binder, Marcy Watts and Callie Charon, will be collecting them and distributing them to families. If you are a family in need of assistance, please contact one of the counselors by email or phone, 503-534-2343. This information is confidential.
