Holiday Baskets, Gift Cards NeededEmpty_Basket_FreeDigitalPhotosNet_bty_antpkr.jpg

In this holiday season, is your office or home over run by empty holiday baskets? If so, the PTO will be accepting empty holiday baskets at the front office. In addition, we welcome any gift cards that you don't need -- these can be a great donation to the Wilson PTO!

These items will put to great use and will benefit our wonderful school. Items will be used in our upcoming Gala & Silent Auction.
