THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OF UNIVERSITY CITY Transform the Life of Every Student Every Day! October 31, 2022 Christine Woodward District Social Worker University City High School. 7401 Balson Avenue University City, Missouri 63130 (314) 290-4114/Fax: (314) 863-5090 cwoodward@ucityschools.org Dear Community Member: One of the best gifts we can give to ourselves is to give to others. The School District of University City and our community have a holiday tradition of lending a hand to families who could use some support. This year there is an even greater need due to the flooding in our community. Last year, we were able to help 89 families with 272 children in our school district. These families either received gifts from partner organizations (e.g. Santa's Helpers) and/or donations from individuals, staff members, organizations, churches, businesses, or other people in our community. A typical "adopted" family received a personal hygiene basket, gift certificate for groceries, laundry soap, toys or activities, and gift cards to buy clothing or other gifts for their children. Once again, the social workers are requesting donations of gift cards to help families purchase their own holiday presents. gift cards to Schnucks, Aldi, Walmart, Target, Walgreens, or Old Navy > Visa or MasterCard gift cards The goal is to help families by giving each child at least $50 in gift cards and $100 in grocery gift cards for the household. University City Fire Department and several local churches collaborate with us to provide additional toys, activities and hygiene supplies for our families. Families have the opportunity to "shop" for additional toys and items when they pick up their gift cards. The District's team of social workers is requesting donations be available by December 5 to help ensure the families have time to buy their gifts for the holidays. Please drop off your donation in a sealed envelope or mail to: University City High School, 7401 Balson Ave. (63130), Attn: Christine Woodward.
