Donor will keep Elk-Trail students warm

An anonymous donor has blessed the staff and 170 students of Elk Trail school with a gracious gift this holiday season totally over $5,000.
Every student and staff member will be receiving for Christmas a new school t-shirt and hoody sweatshirt. The clothing will display the newly designed school logo.
As part of this donation, the agreement was made that the school would choose a local screen printer to manufacture the t-shirts and sweatshirts. The donors wanted to see the community benefit in every way. The school chose Earthshirtz based out of Sams Valley. Owners Carl and Cindy Darnell in turn waived the costs for the design and set-up fees as a donation to the school as well. The hoody sweatshirts were the idea of the anonymous donor not just for their popularity, but they wanted to see that every child had a piece of warm clothing this winter.
Tina Layman, volunteer coordinator at Elk Trail school contacted the Upper Rogue Independent to make sure a huge thank you was given to both the anonymous donor and Earthshirtz. "The entire staff and students are so honored this generous benefactor has chosen our school and community to bless. This is quite an act of generosity from both parties." said Layman.
On Dec. 21 at 1:45pm in the Elk Trail cafeteria, Santa and Mrs. Claus (aka Don and Lois Holland) will attend the schools Winter sing-a-long and give each student their gift. The students will have the chance to visit with Santa and put in for those last Christmas present requests. Along with singing of Christmas carols, cookies and cider will be available. Parents are welcome to attend.
