Washington Elementary would like to thank Holy Cross Lutheran Church for their continuous support for the last three years.  Holy Cross has been a great partner providing volunteers on a regular basis and on special occasions.  Once volunteers became attached to our school, they don’t only serve as mentors but they help meet other student needs.  Our soccer program was in need of equipment and Holy Cross Lutheran volunteers stepped up to help.

In addition, Holy Cross has been involved with many special projects over the years that greatly benefit our families.  At the beginning of the year, they provided backpacks full of school supplies for a 4th grade classroom. In the fall, they organized a coat drive to provide coats for Washington students/families and the community.  During the holidays, they collected and donated food boxes for needy families.  In addition, they sponsored 5-10 families with Christmas gifts for the entire family.   At the end of the school year, they do a clothing exchange for our families to exchange clothes or other household items no longer needed

Holy Cross has been a great resource to provide many items and services that help our students and families on behalf of all our families, thank you for your acts of kindness.   It’s nice to know that Holy Cross Church helps us meet the needs of Washington’s neighborhood.
