The Giving Tree

    
Memorial is participating in a charity program known as the “Giving Tree”. This program supports students and families who are in need during the holiday season. Gift items are purchased by Memorial staff members (no cash gifts). All referrals and families participating in the Giving Tree are ANONYMOUS.
If you are a family in need or know of a Memorial family in need of assistance during this holiday season, please contact one of the Memorial’s Guidance Counselors.

Burlington Fire Holiday Toy Task Force

The  holiday season is  fast approaching, here at Fire, we have in past years teamed up with 'Toys for Tots' to run our holiday toy drive. This has proven more and more difficult to follow through with as they no longer have local contacts and the toys have not always been picked up in time to be distributed by the holidays. That is why this year we have decided that we will not be affiliating ourselves with that program.

Despite that, we will still be collecting toys at both Fire stations. These toys will be driven in by Burlington Firefighters and donated directly to the Children's Hospital of Boston for distribution through the MA Children's hospitals. So spread the word, and lets help put a smile on the children's faces this holiday season.

Your gift donations are just as welcome, and just as appreciated. All of the same still rules apply: new, unused, unwrapped toys for boys and girls of all ages.
Any questions, feel free to ask and we'll try to get an answer as soon as possible.






Help make a difference and donate to the
Burlington Food Pantry


Memorial School is partnering with the Burlington Food Pantry again this year to help support Burlington residents in need during the holiday season. We are looking for people to donate the following items:

cake mix
quick bread mix
cookie mix
frosting
coffee
hot cocoa mix
toothpaste
shampoo
dish detergent
individually-wrapped toilet paper

Memorial 5th Grade Student Council will be organizing the collection and collecting the items to donate to the Food Pantry. You can send items to school with your child to be put in a donation box in their classroom.

Please send in items no later than Friday, December 9, 2016.
