Gledhill Supports Centre 55 for the holidays

Each year Gledhill families show kindness and caring to those in need by donating new unwrapped toys and mittens to Centre 55. Over the next two weeks please help by bringing toys to the sled by the main office and by helping to decorate our tree in the main hall with mittens.

We are also collecting non-perishable food items for Centre 55 on the day of our holiday concert- Thursday December 12th.

Thank you for showing kindness and caring in our community!
