Wow – talk about cooperation and community service among the students and families within our school!
On November 6th , our school’s National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) held a Dress Down Day for the Veterans Community Integration Program – a program which directly benefits homeless veterans in the Tucson area.
TCDS students who chose to dress down were asked to bring $1.00 or bring in a new toiletry item (such as toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, shaving lotion, razors, deodorant, etc.) to be donated to the Veterans Community Integration Program.
NJHS collected $494.31 and 652 individual toiletry items! NJHS will use the $494.31 to purchase mattress covers, which is a much needed item on the organization’s “wish list.”
A huge thank you to the fabulous families of TCDS and all students in preschool through eighth grade! Because of your generosity, this NJHS-sponsored Dress Down Day was a complete success!
This past Tuesday, Jon Wayne Lewis from the Veterans Community Integration Program, came to thank our students for their generosity. He asked students to give themselves a hug and a pat on the back as a thank you from him.
