This is the image for the news article titled "Helping Hands" Holiday Gifts for District Families in Need The Verona Area High School FFA club and district-wide school social workers, along with Joining Forces for Families, are sponsoring a holiday gift opportunity, “Verona Area Helping Hands”, for children and their young siblings from low-income families attending Verona Area Schools. Whether you are a Verona Area School District family in need, or if you desire to donate a gift, please read on…

Families in need
Beginning this year, families in need with students who are, or will be, attending a school in the district should click here to complete this electronic form before Dec. 6 at 4pm. If a family is unable to complete the electronic form, they should contact one of the individuals listed at the bottom of this page who works in their respective school.

Donating a gift for those in need
Each year the Helping Hands holiday gift opportunity is successful due to the many school staff, community members, businesses, and organizations that donate toys to this event. If you interested in donating toys, toy donations will be collected from Monday, November 20th through Friday, December 8th, 2017. When shopping for the holidays, feel free to pick up a gift or two for a child between ages 1 – 18 (note that older elementary through high school-age gifts are often overlooked). No single gift should exceed $30 and should be left unwrapped, and then dropped off at any school in the district by Friday, December 8th, 2017.

We truly appreciate your kindness and goodwill during the holiday season. Thank you.
