The school is the setting for the PTO's Secret Santa Workshop, which will help raise money for Operation Send Santa to the Troops and the Crisis Center of South Suburbia. The Giving From the Heart program also buys Christmas gifts and gives gift cards to needy families from the school and community.
The event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will include raffles, entertainment and other activities. Last year, the program generated more than $700 in donations and gave almost 125 wrapped gifts and gift cards to families.
