‘Presents For People We Care About’ is back

From Jane Shantz


“Presents For People We Care About” is back for its 15th year at Creston Schools. This is a project that involves all children PK- 8th.

Each child is given the opportunity to go shopping for people in their family they care about. This will take place the week of Dec. 11, and runs from 8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

We are looking for donations of gently used or new items that children will be “shopping” for (it is all free for the children). Crafts, decorations, jewelry, presents for dads and grandfathers, candles and lotions are just a few suggestions. We are also looking for gift bags, wrapping paper, gift tags and tape. Each year we have a number of volunteers who come be a part of the joy. We would love to have you as well.

If you have any questions about donations or volunteering, please call Jane Shantz at 641-782-1155 or email
