Doing Good Together! February 7

save the date randyJoin fellow RHS students and families to build our school community through service to others. At this fun community service event, families and friends will work together to produce items to share with various groups in our community.

Save the date

5:30-7 p.m. in the Cafetorium. This is the same night as the Randolph  Heights Open House. You can visit with teachers, meet new families, and volunteer  — all at one fun night at school!

What we’ll do

You can work with your friends and families to:

  • Tie fleece blankets for children of a women’s shelter in St. Paul
  • Make birthday bags for the Hallie Q. Brown food shelf in St. Paul. (Food shelf customers can choose a birthday bag for their child.)
  • Mix up green cleaners for transitional housing in St. Paul.
  • Clean and decorate donated ice skates for St. Paul kids.
  • Make sandwiches for the Dorothy Day Center in downtown St. Paul.

The purpose of Doing Good Together is to offer RHS students and their families simple, meaningful ways to spend time “doing good” for our community.  We’re excited about this program because when parents and children volunteer together it strengthens families, builds communities and provides kids a hands-on way to learn caring, compassion and community responsibility.

We need your help to get ready!

Please review this wish list and think about what you may be able to donate. Items do not have to be new if they look new. Or, you may have a connection with a business that might be able to supply some of these things. Please send items to school labeled “DGT” and put them in the DGT boxes in the hall. Please send your donations by January 18. You may also make a monetary donation, which will be used to purchase supplies. Please send checks, payable to Randolph Heights PTA, in an envelope marked “DGT.”
