Dec 20th, 2013 | By | Category: Front Page, News

December 20, 2013- The Bear Creek School’s Giving Tree program brought holiday cheer to 61 families from the Elizabethtown community by providing them with gifts. The program helped to foster a sense of community for the students and make the holidays better for local families in need. In addition to the generosity of the students, faculty, and staff, several community organizations supported the initiative including the Department of Corrections, St. Peter’s Church, Moose Lodge, and Northwest Regional Police Department. Coupled with the school’s Giving Tree, a food collection was also held in the final days before the holiday break. In total, 54 families will receive food items benefitting nearly 260 individuals. The programs were coordinated by Bear Creek’s school’s counseling office (Tamera Miller and Dann Poukish) with assistance from the PTO.
