Trotter School Holiday Gift Collection

  • Sunday, November 6 - Tuesday, December 13
  • All Day Event
stuffed animal collection

The annual Holiday Gift Collection for the 320 students at Grove Hall’s William Monroe Trotter K-6 School is underway! Students are excited to be back in school, providing opportunities for socializing with friends, reconnecting with teachers, and profiting from a structured school day. Although some normality is restored, many families continue to struggle with loss of employment, food insecurity, and threatened homelessness.

You can brighten the holidays by providing gifts for students ranging in age from 3 to 12. Ideas include: toys, books, academic-type projects, dolls, arts and crafts materials, and games.

How to contribute:

  • Drop off unwrapped gifts (non-violent / no guns) valued at $30 or less at TBE. A collection box is located in the atrium.
  • Order gifts through the Amazon Registry here and send to TBE
  • Purchase gift cards from Target, Star, and Stop and Shop and bring to TBE
  •  Contribute to the RJI Fund for RJI purchases from Black-owned businesses here
