ASTEC Holiday Angels
Happy Thanksgiving! The Holidays are upon us. Most of us have the resources to enjoy the holidays. With a 97% poverty rate, most of the families of our students won't have those resources to provide a Christmas for their children.
Our school counselors have identified the neediest of our students and their younger siblings. The identified students who are mostly middle schoolers, complete a "wish list," asking only for basics such as socks, gloves, soccer balls, etc.
Here is how you can be an angel:
Make a gift (tax-deductible) of $50 (any amount is appreciated) either by a check made out to ASTEC Holiday Angels, and mailed to ASTEC Charter Schools, 2401 NW 23rd Street, OKC, OK., 73107, or through our secure online donation link in the postcard below. A gift of $50 will provide gifts for an ASTEC student.
Counselors are given a Target gift card to shop for the scholars’ items. They wrap the items and have parents come after school before the winter break to pick up the gifts.
The last day to donate is December 12, 2019!
Thank you for considering the opportunity to become a Holiday Angel by adopting one of our students.
I know there are many in need in our community, but perhaps few more than these children.
