Help Marguerita Families in Need

Over the last few years, Marguerita PTA has held a Pennies for Presents collection in December to help Marguerita families in need. Due to Covid-19 restrictions this year, we will be holding a "virtual" Pennies for Presents.  

We will be collecting funds through December 9 to partner with the non-profit group Catalyst SGV to provide assistance to Marguerita HOPE and STAR families this holiday season. STAR, or the Students at Risk program, serves foster youth, students on probation, refugees and military students, and the HOPE program stands for Homeless and Parent Engagement.

Marguerita has 22 students in these programs, and we hope to raise a total of $550 to help them.

These donations go directly to aid these specific students and are separate from PTA funds and programs. Any voluntary donation would be greatly appreciated. Although normally even pennies and loose change will help, because we can only accept online donations with credit cards this year, we ask that donations start at $5.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
