Annual LAS Holiday Boutique – December 3

LAS Holiday Boutique – December 3, 2018

We are ready to accept your donations!

We are preparing for the Annual LAS Holiday Boutique — an “in school store” set up by the PTA that is filled with merchandise donated by families and friends of LAS so children can shop for their loved ones for the Holidays.

The items for sale generally retail from $1.00 to $6.00 per item. The children shop with the help of volunteers during school hours on Monday, December 3rd.  Donated items are requested before Thanksgiving. Our goal is to collect approximately 3,000 items. Your child will be shopping for siblings, parents, grandparents, pets etc, therefore we need gifts for all ages and types. The success of this event is due to the dedication and generosity of many, many parents!

How can you help? Here are some ideas… 

  • New this year ….  You can choose something from the sign up genius https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0c4daea62aa20-holiday1
  • You can donate your own crafts (ornaments/decorations) or store bought items (toys, notepads, mugs, lotion/bath sets, candles, scarves, jewelry, tool kits, ice scrapers, calendars, etc.) for the Boutique.
  • Dollar stores, The Christmas Tree Shop, Michael’s, Five Below and Oriental Trading offer a wide variety of gifts perfect for the Holiday Boutique.
  • Feeling crafty? Host a crafting night and make your own creations!
  • We’d love to shop for you. Monetary donations are greatly appreciated! If you have a monetary contribution (cash or check payable to LAS PTA), please place it in  a sealed envelope and mark it Holiday Boutique
  • In addition, we need volunteers to help wrap the items or to work on the day of the event helping with sales (in 2-4 hour increments). Please consider taking a few hours to help out with this event. The children love it and it is fun helping them choose gifts for their family. – Sign up coming soon – Stay tuned!

Please watch our website for sign ups and if you’d like to donate an item, please drop it off in the box in the main lobby along with your contact info.

Thank you in advance for helping make this year’s Boutique one of the most successful ever!

Please contact Marcy Kielczynski at  [email protected] or Suzana Carvalho at [email protected] with any questions.
