At the beginning of December, the staff at Summit Elementary School reached out to some families that are in need this Christmas with the goal of helping their Christmas wishes come true.
Twenty-eight families each shared a few things that their children would love to find under their Christmas tree this year. The staff at Summit put each wish list on a ornament and hung it on a tree at the school.
Of the 28 original ornaments, 22 were taken – and the wishes fulfilled – by family and friends of Summit Elementary.
The Bubba Show on Star 100.7 has partnered with Richard Bazzy at Shults Ford to launch a “Yes Pittsburgh, There is a Santa” campaign to ensure all families have a wonderful Christmas this year. With just a few ornaments left, Amy Scheidt reached out to the Bubba Show to see if they could help – and they said yes! Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Bazzy and the Bubba Show, the remaining 6 families will have their wish lists fulfilled!
Mr. Bazzy also kindly offered to supply Summit with several hams so that the school can enjoy a special meal together.
Summit’s theme of the month is to be kind. We are so thankful for the kindness of the Bubba Show, Mr. Bazzy and everyone else who helped make Christmas wishes come true for 28 families! We truly appreciate your generosity and kindness. It’s heartwarming to see that our students have so many outstanding role models around them! Thank you!
We have received inquiries about additional donations. If you would still like to donate to a family in need, please call 724-214-3880.
