DONATE GIFT CARDS TO HELP BROADMEADOW FAMILIES

One way that Broadmeadow School has worked to support families is by providing gift cards to families in need. As the winter months approach, this need tends to grow. Recently these gift cards have been used to purchase urgent items such as food and clothing. Many families have asked how they can continue to support our community and donations of gift cards to local supermarkets or stores that provide helpful items such as Target would be greatly appreciated. These gift cards are made available to families via our administration staff and guidance team, and can be sent in with your student.
