We couldn't let a date like Tuesday, 2/22/22 pass by without marking the occasion in a big, generous way!

We're calling it Giving 222's Day -- a day for Echo Hill students to give back to the community by collecting 222 items for Waypoint Services in Cedar Rapids. Waypoint provides  proactive solutions and resources for those experiencing homelessness, poverty, and violence, or needing affordable child care.

Students may bring their item(s) to school on February 22 and fill the tote located in their pod. Together we'll tally up the donated goods and report the total on February 23 before delivering to Waypoint.

Not sure what to give? Here's a list of items that Waypoint regularly needs for the clients they serve:

Personal Care:
  • toothbrushes
  • ​toothpaste
  • deodorant (especially men's)
  • lotion
  • body wash (especially men's)

Things to Wear:
  • socks
  • gloves
  • hats

For the Home:
  • twin sheets
  • pillows + pillow cases
  • shower curtains
     
This is an optional activity for all Echo Hill students and families; we hope you'll join us in celebrating Giving 222's Day this year! Thank you!
