Enterprise Elementary’s teachers, staff members, student volunteers and Americorps members sorted donations and gifts for 44 school families for their 19th annual Families Helping Families program Dec. 10.

A classroom was converted into a winter supply center containing gifts, clothing, socks, underwear and toiletry items that were collected during an all-school holiday drive. Enterprise families and their students, school staff, former teachers and World Vision supported the program through their donations of gifts, items, and their time. Families were welcomed to Enterprise to pick up their items. Through this program, Enterprise Elementary supports the school district’s goal 2 of the strategic plan by addressing the needs of the whole child.
