Do Something Club Holiday Gift Card Drive


Caroline Michailoff, Co-Editoral Director, Junior

With the 2020 holiday season quickly approaching, the Do Something Club is holding their annual holiday gift card drive. President Katie Brandler, a sophomore, and Advisor Mrs. Connolly have organized the drive this year along with the club members in order to collect gift cards for teenagers and families in Pelham who will not be able to exchange gifts this holiday season due to a variety of challenges. Their campaign this year is “10 for teens”, which means that they are hoping to collect several $10 gift cards to popular teen stores and donate them to members of our community in need. 

Members of the club, along with anyone else wishing to participate, will purchase/collect gift cards or small holiday gifts and drop them off to Ms. Connolly in room 133. Once they have collected all the gift cards, they will then be distributed to Pelham families in need by Ms. Connolly. 

“It is especially important to give back to members of our community during the holidays,” said Brandler, “Especially during this year with so much uncertainty, we want Pelham families to have holiday gifts!”
