PADS Crisis Services is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to providing emergency shelter, permanent housing, and supportive services to families with children and individuals who are experiencing homelessness in Lake County. As Adler Gators, we are proud of our commitment to the community and to helping others.<br /><br />With the coming of the warmer weather (we hope!), so comes the closing of the warming shelters, necessitating more than ever assistance with food for others in<br />crisis. From January 22nd to January 26th, Student Council members will be making 20 lunches EACH DAY for PADS. We have been asked to include 2 sandwiches in each lunch. In order to make this service project a success, we are in need of several items.<br /><br />Kindergarten: Fruit - applesauce or fruit cups with easy-open lids and Wipes &ndash; individually wrapped antibacterial wipes<br />1st Grade: Snacks &ndash; individually wrapped snacks (chips, pretzels, crackers)<br />2nd Grade: Bottles of Water and EXTRA LARGE paper lunch bags<br />3rd Grade: Cheese - pre-sliced not processed cheese<br />4th Grade: Meat - pre-sliced deli meat<br />5th Grade: Bread - any kind of pre-sliced sandwich bread<br /><br />Please send in items during the week of January 16th.&nbsp; We will begin making lunches before school on Monday, January 22nd.<br />**** We will also need parents to take the lunches to PADS that week.&nbsp; If you can volunteer, please contact Mrs. Gasick and Miss Davis<br /><br />Thank you for your generosity!&nbsp; We appreciate your continued support!</p> Fri, 12 Jan 2018 13:56:15 -8200 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=1#5476
