    Hampers:

    Glenwood School is currently reviewing our hamper plan for this holiday season. As such we are strongly encouraging families to contact the Cheer Board and Toy Mountain this year if they need assistance. We are hoping that if some of our Glenwood families can receive support from these organizations, we can then focus the resources we have on the remaining families that aren’t receiving any type of support. Registration with the Cheer Board begins on November 3rd at 8:30 A.M. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the “how to apply” page and documents needed when calling and registering. There may also be long delays when calling and you may have to call back multiple times so, please take this into consideration. The information for the Cheer Board and Toy Mountain are below.

    Due to increased demand and ever rising prices, Glenwood School will not be able to offer the same type of hampers as we have in the past, but we are still hoping to do what we can. 

    Last year we had a parent who organized a hamper drive through their workplace for one of our families. If this is something, you might be interested in doing, please feel free to reach out and I can provide you with more details. We are also accepting donations if you are able. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Ritchot for more information.
