Celebration of Giving & Open Door Mission Sock Drive

Celebration of Giving

West Bay Elementary, along with all Elkhorn elementary & middle schools, are again partnering with Womenade of Elkhorn to support their Celebration of Giving project.  West Bay families get to share the spirit of the holiday season by purchasing gifts from wish lists completed by local Elkhorn families identified as needing special assistance.

How to help:

1.  Sign-up to fulfill as many wishes as you are able on the following sign-up genius link:

Celebration of Giving Sign-up

2.  Purchase & wrap the gift(s).

3.  Attach a sticky note referencing the “code” which can be found on the sign-up AND the gift description. (i.e. NF8 – Boy’s size L sweatshirt or NC-22 Walmart Gift Card $50)  

4.  Drop off the wrapped and labeled gifts just inside the entrance of the school before or after school on December 10, 11, or 12th.

Help us make wishes come true!  Please contact Katy Bode at 312-399-8520 with any questions.  

Open Door Mission Sock Drive

West Bay will be doing a Sock Drive for the Elkhorn Open Door Mission!  NEW socks of any type and size will be collected and can be dropped off before or after school December 10, 11, or 12th.  Another option to donate socks is to purchase socks via the following Amazon link and the socks will be shipped directly to the West Bay coordinator of the Sock Drive.  https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3NQFORDUCKIH/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_4?_encoding=UTF8&type=wishlist
