Make-A-Wish Campaign

Posted in News

Dear Altara Parents,

We had our MAKE-A-WISH assembly on December 6th.  Little Elaina was not well, so we were unable to meet her.  We still had a fantastic time learning about MAKE-A-WISH, and how our Altara community will be contributing to this organization.  We are thrilled to have the opportunity to "adopt" Elaina, particularly where Elaina and her family live right here in our Altara boundaries!  Just a few reminders:     LETTERS TO SANTA -

·            Macy’s will donate $1.00 for every letter to Santa received at our school to the National MAKE-A-WISH Foundation.

·            We will have special "Santa letters" for each student at our school.  Children are welcome to use this letterhead, but may also write letters and/or draw pictures on any paper they would like to send to Santa. 

·            Children are welcome to submit as many letters as they would like!


·            We are asking the kids to bring in spare change to fill our large collection jar at our school.

·            You are also welcome to donate cash, or donate with a check.  If donating with a check, please make check to Altara, with "Make-A-Wish" in the memo line. 

·            If you know of businesses that are looking for service opportunities, or have extended families looking for meaningful service opportunities, please share this letter with them.

Papa Murphy's -

·            Sandy location (9413 Union Square) has offered to donate 20% of all sales linked to our special Spirit Week flyer to our MAKE-A-WISH campaign.  They will accept our fliers from Monday, December 12th through Sunday, December 18th

Bahama Bucks -

·            Draper (582 East 12300 South) is hosting a Dessert Night on Tuesday, December 13th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. No flyer is required. Bahama Bucks will donate 20% of all the sales that evening to Make-A-WISH.

The Printed Garden Bookstore-

·            Sandy (9445 Union Square Suite A) is also supporting our MAKE-A-WISH project!  They are hosting a special Spirit Day for us on Thursday, December 15th from 10:00 am - 9:00 pm.  No flyer is required, but please mention Altara and MAKE-A-WISH.  A portion of these sales will also be donated to MAKE-A-WISH.  This local bookstore is only a couple of doors south of Papa Murphy's.  You may want to make an evening of this, by picking-up a delicious pizza and a good book for a wonderful cause!



Thank you for supporting Altara and our service project for MAKE-A-WISH.  We are looking forward to December 12th-16th!
