For each Sunday of February (5th, 12th, 19th, 26th) you will bring a small gift for the person whose name you chose and place it in the bin located near the ramp entrance to the Sanctuary. Gift examples: cards, candy, pens, etc., just a small token to tell them you are thinking about them. IMPORTANT: Do not reveal your name as the gift-giver, but be sure to place the name of the receiver on your gift. On the last Sunday, February 26th, you will reveal your name. If you have any questions, please ask Jeanie Combs.

Words of Thanks:

*On behalf of all the CES [Central Elementary School] students and families who benefited from your Angel Tree gifts and/or food donations, we would like to thank you for your generosity. It is wonderful to have the support of the community during a time that can be so stressful for our students and their families. We realize it is not easy to find the time and money to give to others in need. Your contribution was graciously received and your commitment to helping others is admirable. Our mission of Central Elementary and every Amherst County Public School is to improve the life and learning of students: Every Child, Every Day. Thank you again for helping us with this goal! This year, your contributions helped 71 CES students with either gifts or food donations. The CES students and their families are very fortunate to live in a community with such caring people. Kindest Regards, Lauren Kershner (School Counselor), Derek Adam (Principal), Melissa Ferguson (Assistant Principal).
