Thank Yous

Thank you so much to Nicole W for all her hard work organizing and running the Christmas food drive. This in an incredibly important even for our community at large as well as our Lochside community. Thank you as well to all the families for their donations.

Thank you again to everyone who helped out with Fun Lunch this past week, you help keep things running smoothly!


Fill The House Food Collection

ONE WEEK LEFT!!!!! This is the last week we are collecting food for our Fill the House LEPAC initiative!!! Please bring your food donations as well as your decorated gingerbread person and come by the office to check out our huge gingerbread house! We are excited to see the house being filled with non perishable food that will go to Lochside families in need as well as the Mustard Seed. We are also accepting monetary donations that can be dropped off in the Christmas stocking hanging on the Christmas tree. We thank you in advance for your support of this important community event. The food will be picked up on December 13th at approximately 1:00pm. 


Christmas Tree Wishlist

STARTS TOMORROW!!! We are excited to announce that families will have the opportunity to fulfill holiday gift wish list items for Lochside families in need again this year. There is a Christmas tree in the lobby with gingerbread men ornaments hanging from it noting the various wish lists. Should your family choose to “fulfill a wish”, an adult may remove a gingerbread man from the tree, purchase the item on the back, return the unwrapped gift along with the gingerbread man and place it in the designated box under the tree in the foyer. The tree will be set up with the Wishlist items starting Dec 9th and will go until Dec18th. All gifts must be returned by the morning of Dec. 18th.


Holiday Book Shop

The holiday book shop will be happening on December 17th & 18th, the dates are a bit later than originally planned due to the strike. Please bring in all donations of books and wrapping paper as soon as possible!
