Holiday Giving Program

Hello Gilbert Families,

I am thrilled that we will once again be offering our winter holiday giving program. If your family is experiencing financial hardship, we are able to discreetly give support by providing gifts for your school-aged children. We work with the local Boy Scouts, sports teams, and individual families to coordinate donations.

If you are in need of this support, please fill out the following form: Holiday Support 2023. If for any reason you are unable to fill out the form or you have additional questions, please reach out to Mel Woodin at  woodinm@gilbertcsd.org.

Please have the form submitted by Friday, Nov 10th.

If you are interested in donating to help our families, please email Mel Woodin at woodinm@gilbertcsd.org.
