Gifts From The Heart Event – Dec. 2

Our annual Gifts From the Heart event, one of Homestead’s finest traditions, will take place on Saturday, Dec. 2 between 9 a.m. and noon in the Homestead Gym. Grab your kids and join us to craft your way down your holiday list. A selection of pre-purchased crafts will be available for students to assemble and wrap. The gifts are not holiday-themed and are perfect for anytime of year!

There are ten crafts available, which can be created by kids of all ages. Please note: The process is changing slightly this year – we have prepped 120 of each craft. Once a craft is sold out, there will be no more available. We will be taking orders until Mon. Nov. 27. Leftover crafts will be available for day-of purchasing on a first-come, first-served basis. Descriptions, pictures and prices of the various crafts can be found on the Cheddar-Up link:

We are in need of volunteers at each of the craft stations! Please sign-up if you would like to help us with this amazing event here:
