Downsize & Donate

junk donate boxWe are at it again, 6 years of Quinn family tradition, and we are hoping you can join in the fun! It is time to make room for the holidays and reclaim your living space. We are collecting donations of very gently used and new items to be grouped together (2- 5+ items) and given to someone in need of holiday cheer. This year we will be working with Catholic Charities in Cranford. They support and help many local organizations, children, and families. This is a great way to make a difference in someone’s life without spending a lot! Find out how here.

Give Me Some Feathers!

PluckedHave mercy – these turkeys are FREEZING COLD and shivering, people! You can help them warm up AND help Cranford Family Care. The kids just might learn a lesson about caring too. Here’s what it’s all about: in WAS spirit of giving back, this year the WAS PTA is hosting a Turkey Teacher Drive to support Cranford Family Care. Each teacher will receive a “turkey” and we will sell feathers to be placed on their turkey for 25 cents each. The teacher’s class who raises the most money will receive a Barnes and Noble Gift Card for their classroom library. All proceeds raised will be given to Cranford Family Care the week of 11/24. Monies will be collected from now until Friday, November 21. Any questions, please contact Jean Mannix at jacherrubb@msn.com. Misplaced your copy of the flyer? Get it here: turkeyteacherdrive. The turkeys and families thank you for your generosity!
