The ISLA Student Council decided to work on putting together some baskets for families in need over the Holidays. They will be brought to the local ICA Food Shelf. We will be collecting items Monday through Wednesday Dec. 17-19, and we will have them delivered on Thursday December 20th.

In order to make this happen, we need ISLA families to donate any of the following items:

Healthy snacks and fruit, candy canes, chips, small Xmas ornaments, small packages of nuts, gum, mints, popcorn, and small cereal boxes.

Baskets: small red, green, brown, gold or popcorn bowls
