It is time for the Red Bag Project! The Red Bag Project is organized by MP's Community Service Club to help provide gifts for children in the foster care system.
Every year the Manchester Park Community Service Club coordinates the collection of gifts for underprivileged children in KC through RedBagsKC. This has long been a favorite activity of the CSC and the MPE Community in general and we're excited for you to be a part of it! We're looking forward to sponsoring 58 kids school-wide and hopefully providing them with a gaggle of gifts, warm coats and new shoes.
Unwrapped gifts must be returned to your child's classroom by Monday, November 29th (Monday after Thanksgiving). The Community Service Club will be wrapping the gifts that evening!
Check the SignUp Genius for your child's grade below and select the items you're interested purchasing.
Want to take your child shopping to pick out the gift? AWESOME!
Found the perfect gift but it's not on the list? TOTALLY COOL, just select "other item" on the signup genius and let us know what's coming.
Please have your gifts delivered UNWRAPPED; gift receipts are ok but not necessary as we can't promise they'll stay with the gift since we have lots of wrapping helpers.
We also provide a handmade no-sew fleece blanket to each child, the kits can be found at most craft stores and also need to be delivered to the school by 11/29.
Participation is completely optional and we appreciate everyone's generosity.
We're normally able to contribute 10-12 gifts PER CHILD plus a blanket!
