Help us bring the Shady Oak Christmas love and magic our community–inside and out.

Charitable Organizations

This year, we are collecting items to be distributed to three local charitable organizations: Lunches of Love, CASA, and the You Can Academy at Friends of North Richmond. Items to be collected are individually wrapped snack/lunch box items (non-refrigerated) and unwrapped gifts/toys for kids ages 3-12. These items will be collected over the entire week, so you may drop off your items at any time during school hours on Dec 10 – 14.

Ideas for Snacks (items need to be individually packaged and shelf-stable/non-refrigerated)

•Granola bars
•Packaged chips, pretzels, etc.
•Juice boxes
•Squeeze fruit

*All snack items will be distributed after the Week of Giving. You may bring these items in at any time during the week.

Ideas for Gifts (unwrapped):

•Finger nail polish
•Head phones – fuzzy, colorful, or over-the-head style for older kids
•Stuffed animals
•Journals and cute stationary
•Friendship bracelet sets

*The You Can Academy has requested that item we collect be distributed to them by Wednesday; they will use our items to help fill the Gift Boxes that they give to their children at their annual Christmas Party–which happens to be on Dec 14! Therefore, gifts/toys that are appropriate for kids in grades 1st-5th that are collected on Mon-Tues will go to You Can Academy, which serves approximately 40 children in those grades. All the remaining gifts/toys collected on Wed – Fri will go to CASA, which serves children of all ages.
