Two Ways to be Generous this Holiday Season

We have many parents and staff members who are incredibly generous during this upcoming season of peace and love. Through Hope for the Holidays, the program that each year identifies families in need, contributions of food, clothing and children’s gifts are collected and delivered to the families just in time for Christmas.

This program has become magically stronger through an anonymous donor who established a fund through the Barberton Community Foundation to help our program. It is called the Holiday Elf Now and Forever Fund. Now we can serve even more children this Christmas and anyone who contributes can also get a tax deduction, right before the end of the year!

If you are someone who could use help this year, please fill out an application, and you may be eligible to receive a basket. Applications can be found at Barberton High School in the main office, or at our website,

Another way that you can help children with a donation is to contribute to another fund that was established called the TEACH Now and Forever Fund. This stands for Technology Education Advancing Children’s Higher Achievement. This fund was started to allow Barberton City Schools to purchase technology for student use. The District has been slowly increasing the amount of technology for our students, but we can do so much more to enrich students’ experiences if we had more resources devoted to purchasing technology that will help prepare students for college and/or careers.

If you wish to make a contribution to the Holiday Elf Fund or the TEACH Fund, please send your donation to Mrs. Janice Stephenson at Barberton Community Foundation, 460 W. Paige Ave., Barberton 44203. You can also donate online at Just click on “Donate Now” and you will see a drop down menu of all of the funds to choose from. Not only will you get that wonderfully warm feeling that comes when you help children, but you can also get a tax break. Have a safe, enjoyable and blessed Thanksgiving!
