December 2016 Events at Armenta Learning Academy
During the month of December, we will be collecting donations of new, unopened toys, games, books, crayons, markers, clothing etc. to donate to needy children. We will also help the “I Am Foundation” with their goal to provide 1,000,000 books each year. Please bring any books new or slightly used and other donations to ALA.
This year for Armenta Angels we are collecting jackets, coats, sweaters and sweatshirts for local homeless people. We will be collecting at ALA all the way up to Winter Recess then taking all the jackets to Los Angeles for distribution.
ALA will be holding a contest to see which student will work the most volunteer hours this month. Students just need to log their service hours and have them signed by a supervisor or parent. We will tally up the hours at the end of the month, and whoever spent the most time volunteering will win a prize!
