Kids to Kids Holiday Giveaway Warms Hearts with the Spirit of Giving

dsc_0901Students from North Middle School and Paris Elementary recently spent a cold Saturday morning warming hearts. Thanks to an incredible community partner, Erica Rae’s Kids, North and Paris students and their siblings shopped with Santa’s helpers (Aurora Lights students from Aurora Central High School) to pick out gifts for their siblings.

Despite the snow and freezing cold, about 1500 kids took part in the Kids to Kids Great Christmas Giveaway at North Middle School. Dedicated students and staff at North transformed the building into a holiday wonderland. Students wrote letters to Santa, wrapped their gifts for siblings and celebrated the spirit of giving with the Aurora community.

This event was made possible thanks to the hard work of Erica Rae’s Kids, staff members at North and Paris and countless donations from the community.

Aurora Public Schools is thankful for our many partners who uphold the APS 2020: Shaping the Future core belief that community partnerships provide vital resources and opportunities for students and families.
