Hand Up for the Holidays is a partnership with Trewyn Elementary to provide new school uniforms (shirt and pants), gloves, hats, socks, and children’s underwear to over 125 students. By helping these children meet their basic needs, we can help them be successful in the classroom.
Volunteers can choose one or multiple children and purchase Peoria approved school uniforms starting October 29, 2018. To receive a name, email Ben Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org. Uniforms consist of a polo shirt in red, black, or navy, and pants in the color black, navy, or khaki. On average a complete uniform will cost approximately $25. Uniforms are asked to be dropped off at the LJB Center by December 7, 2018 in a holiday gift bag. Cash and check donations are also accepted.
