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 books 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 mid October. To receive a name, email firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the Student Activities Office (Student Center 28). 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 and book will cost approximately $25-$30. Uniforms and children’s books are asked to be dropped off at the Student Activities Office by the first Friday after Study Day in a holiday gift bag. Cash and check donations are also accepted.
