Holley Interact Club Helps with Holley Days of Shopping Setup

Everyone who donated their time, money and/or gifts made this event possible. I am so proud to be a part of such a dedicated community and district!
— Kelly Bates, Elementary School social worker

In early December, members of the Holley Interact Club volunteered to set up the Elementary Primary Gym for the Holley Days of Shopping event on Dec. 7-8. The students worked with Social Worker Samantha Zelent to bring donated gift items to the Elementary School, sort them into categories, and arrange them on tables, floors, shelves and the stage so that district families could shop for holiday presents. The shopping event helped 56 families, including 132 children, receive gifts this year. Any remaining items went to the Community Center. “We cannot thank the community and local organizations enough for the support we received this year,” said Kelly Bates, Elementary School social worker and coordinator of Holley Days of Shopping. “Everyone who donated their time, money and/or gifts made this event possible. I am so proud to be a part of such a dedicated community and district!” Thank you to Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes, Inc., Clarendon Lions Club, Crosby’s, Dr. Daniel Schiavone, Holley Rotary Club, The Whole Approach, and many community members for their donations. Just like the back of the students’ t-shirts states, this community believes in “Service Above Self.”
