Your generous donations are taken to the Caring Kitchen and will serve local families in need. Each grade is assigned one month where they will be encouraged to make non-perishable food donations each week. To see which month your children will be asked to donate food, check your Unity School calendar- it’s the first entry under the notes section on the right side of the calendar. Thank you, Jeanne Evans, for chairing this very important drive!
Recycled Uniforms. We are always happy to accept uniforms that are still usable for our recycled uniform program. Please leave any donations at the front desk for pick up.
Shoes2You. Shoes2You, Inc. was developed in 2013 by Joseph Rubsamen, a Unity School graduate, who was inspired to help provide shoes for people living in poverty. Unity School accepts shoes for donation to Shoes2You, Inc. year round. Please place any gently used shoes in the bin in front of the middle school office.
TREE TO TRAY PROGRAM:
Do you or someone you know have fruit bearing trees in the yard? Then be a part of Unity School’s exciting Tree to Tray program. Parents can drop off bags or boxes of local, organically grown fruits that come from your own backyard trees. Unity’s Food Service Director, Lori Robbins will be using the fruit from our trees, and turning it into delicious meals that end up on our children’s lunch trays. So, those wonderful avocados that are filling your trees right now will be used to make fresh, homemade guacamole for taco day. And the limes, oranges and lemons make wonderful, flavored water for our children and for family events at school. Donating these items helps expose our children to food they may not normally eat. Fresh food is a crucial part of our children’s health and provides the nutrients and energy they need to fully participate in all of the educational and enrichment activities here at Unity. All fresh produce is welcome! Each month we will feature the items that are seasonally harvested as a reminder to support this program. Help us get your extra fruit off your trees and onto our children’s trays!
Our purpose is to provide a safe, happy environment for your child, where they are able to be themselves and thrive; while acquiring the educational foundation needed to achieve
