Giving Tree Bags -
Each year, Giving Tree aims to provide children in need with a gift bag full of winter clothes and school supplies. The hope is that these children will one day pay it forward
and give to others. A programme of the Community Center Shanghai, it keeps the children’s preferences in mind with individualised bags and gives our students the opportunity
to hand deliver bags to the children who will benefit from them.
• This year the Giving Tree bags will be pre-filled, which will cost RMB185 and you are required to purchase a toy and an educational book for approximately RMB70.
• Alternatively, families can donate RMB250 for all items to be brought on their behalf.
• If you would like to participate, please sign-up by visiting the link below by Friday 27 October 2017.
Online payment for The Giving Tree
• Alternatively, you can make a cash payment in the school Uniform Shop.
• Bags will be sent home with your son/daughter and should be returned to school by Wednesday 15 November 2017.
• Bags will include instructions, helpful information and a gift card.
This year we have committed to fill 600 bags. If you have any queries, please contact Ling Coong (firstname.lastname@example.org).
