Support McKinley’s “One Box, One Family” Drive for a Zimbabwe School

For the past few years, the McKinley School Student Council has led our school community in providing significant support to a school in Zimbabwe.  Our donations are made to the school through the United States / African Children’s Fellowship Fund (USACF).  This organization links approximately 100 schools in the tri-state area with 100 schools in Tanzania and Zimbabwe.  The USACF provides the shipping and delivery of the materials that we collect.

The Student Council would like to encourage McKinley families to donate new or gently used clothes, school supplies, art supplies, toys, books or soccer equipment to our sister school. Last year, families were encouraged to send in one box per family. Boxes ranged from shoe boxes to cartons. We nearly filled an entire truck with our donations!  They were greatly appreciated by the students in Zimbabwe.

This year, the “One Box, One Family” drive will take place during the month of January. If you wish to make a contribution, please mark our family’s box “Zimbabwe” and deliver it to the school lobby.  Thank you!

Student Council Advisor

Thanks for Supporting American Legion Post 143’s Annual Toy Drive!

Thank you to the entire McKinley Community for supporting our Annual Toy Drive in honor of our American Legion Post 143 Veterans. PTA members Mindy Morgan and Adam Socol delivered a huge box of toys earlier this week. The Fairfield Police planned to deliver our toys to the pediatric ward at Bridgeport Hospital earlier this week. So many wonderful blessings through this Student Council-sponsored drive: we showed love to our Veterans, we supported our local police department, we brought smiles of joy to sick children and their siblings and we were able to experience the joy of doing something good. Many thanks to Mindy Morgan for spearheading this annual tradition. Happy Holidays, McKinley Family!!
