There’s a frosty nip in the air and that means that APA’s annual multi-campus donation drive is just around the corner.
Holiday service has always been an APA tradition and helps to promote one of our Ambassador areas of focus: community service. We want students to know they can make a difference in their own communities and around the world by helping those in need.
Collection dates: Friday, December 1st – Friday, December 15th
Who can participate: This is an ALL UTAH campus event for preschool through 12th grades.
Requirements: Donations must be new and unused and if possible have at least 6 months before expiring in order to be shipped abroad.
Every campus, every grade, and every classroom will be working together to defeat germs around the world!
This year we’ll be collecting hygiene supplies for Globus Relief, an organization that redistributes donated medical, dental, and hygiene items to 12,000 humanitarian projects locally and around the world. Check out their amazing work at www.globusrelief.org!
We will collect the following for the holiday drive:
- Packaged Combs
This is also an important opportunity to involve our older students in becoming advocates and participating in the work it takes to put on such an event.
As such we will also sponsor a:
- Donation Drive Prep event: 10th graders will learn how a donation drive works and will help prepare collection materials and publicity pieces.
- Globus Relief Volunteer Visit: Selected Ambassador councils will help run the drive and represent APA at the warehouse where they’ll deliver donation and man a volunteer shift.
Be on the lookout for more information in your student’s newsletters!
