Cool to Care continues through Dec. 8

DAVISON — With the approach of the holiday season, Davison Community Schools is once again holding its “Cool to Care” campaign.

With the continuing threat of COVID- 19, however, the schools are taking a different approach this year.

All of the school buildings and the Cardinal’s Nest will continue to accept nonperishable food items and paper products, but district officials are encouraging parents and students to consider making a monetary donation instead.

In a letter to parents, Superintendent Kevin Brown said encouraging monetary donations instead of donations of nonperishable items will help the district reduce the number of items coming into the schools. It will also allow people to donate electronically.

As in past years, the money collected will be given to Outreach East, a nondenominational, walk-in, year-round emergency resource center dedicated to assisting Davison area families in need.

Much of what is collected through the Cool to Care drive will go right back to helping Davison students and their families.

To make an online donation, visit the DCS e-Funds site at: payments.efundsforschools.com/v3/ districts/56436.

If you do prefer to send in canned good or non-perishable items, please do not send items that are expired or out of date. — G.G.
