Holiday Kindness:
In our cold Canadian weather nothing feels better then bundling up in a beautiful cozy winter coat and boots. Unfortunately some of our new and returning families can't afford the warmest coats and boots for their children or find that extra money to afford the luxuries for gift giving during the holidays. Pilgrim Wood has traditionally been very generous to families in need and it is that time of year when we would like to anonymously help our neighbour. If you feel it in your heart and would like to give to these Pilgrim Wood Families that need help we ask that you donate through School Cash On-Line and select DONATION. The instructions are attached.

Please indicate it is for the Dolphin Fund. You will instantly be issued a tax receipt. If you are a family that could use a CONFIDENTIAL helping hand, please contact Mrs. Murray or Mr. Lall in the office at 905-825-9808. We will do our best to assist you.

Holiday Toy Drive:
We invite all Pilgrim Wood families to take part in our Holiday Toy Drive commencing FridayDecember 8th and wrapping up on Monday, December 18th. Students are asked to donate a new toy, in its original packaging, so as a school we can contribute to efforts being made at both the Kerr Street Mission and Toys for Tots. Our school goal is to accumulate 500 toys so that less fortunate children are able to enjoy this time of year. Your generosity and compassion is greatly appreciated.
