Donate Winter Gear and Gift Cards to Washburn Cares

The Washburn Cares committee is collecting donations of new or gently used winter coats, hats, mittens, and boots to provide to students in need. Thank you for ensuring that our students stay warm this winter! 

As you are shopping in the coming weeks, please consider making a gift card purchase to help those in our Washburn community. Washburn Cares is collecting $25 gift cards to Walmart, Target, Cub, and Aldi for Washburn's social workers to distribute to students/families in need around the holidays. 

Winter clothing and gift card donations can be brought to Washburn's main office. We are grateful for your kindness!

Washburn Cares would like to thank the Plourde real estate team for their sizable donation of winter gear and other much-needed items, as well as the East Harriet Neighborhood Association for their generous financial contribution. Additional thanks to the numerous Washburn community members who purchased poinsettias and winter greens to support the Washburn Cares fundraiser. Washburn's students/families benefit greatly from the thoughtfulness of our caring Washburn community!
