Please join the Sharing Committee in our tradition of providing holiday meals to the families of our sister school, Carman-Buckner Elementary. Carman-Buckner is located about 25 miles north of Wilmette in Waukegan, and 89% of the students come from low-income households. Let’s help make their holidays even brighter this season!
In partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, we safely provided meals for 280 families for Thanksgiving. As the holidays approach, we are continuing the Share the Feast drive to provide gift cards for holiday meals this December.
We are excited to announce that we have partnered with The Book Stall this year to offer a unique Book Fair! They will offer in-store shopping by appointment November 23rd-November 30.
Their online store will be open from November 23rd to December 7th, just in time for holiday shopping. A portion of the proceeds from the sales will come back to McKenzie.
Check out the information here. https://shop.thebookstall.com/mckenzie-elementary-school-book-fair
IMPORTANT: When completing your online shopping order please write “McKENZIE SCHOOL BOOK FAIR” in the order comments box. This is how we will know to mark your sale for our final donation.
Please contact Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Help make the holidays brighter for a student at Carman-Buckner Elementary School by donating a new toy! In many cases, this will be the only present they receive, so let’s share the joy from McKenzie. Please donate your unwrapped toys between November 16 and December 4. For more information on how to donate and to sign up, please visit this sign-up. Please reach out to Erich Kirr or Jenn Mullman with any questions and thank you!
