The teachers and staff of Courtenay Language Arts Center, Sheridan Park's K-8 school, are trying to make sure that each of their students gets a gift this holiday season, and are asking for your help!
- You can take a look at the school's Amazon wishlist (here) and order from it, OR
- You can show up at My Buddy's (4416 N Clark) this Saturday between 2pm and 6pm and read through the students' requests, take a letter, and "adopt a student" for the holidays.
Sadly, the majority of students at Courtenay come from low-income families, and about a fifth are homeless. There's absolutely no guarantee that there will be gifts for them during the holiday season. If you would like to help the faculty and staff make a difference for their students, please reach out and help if you are able.
