•  Book Fair Thanks  •
Thanks to amazing chairs Katie Duimstra, Nikki Stark and Tory Todaro  for another amazing Book Fair that supports our school library. Thank you to all the families that helped support the book fair! Thank you to Mr. Sal for always helping out wherever we need you.

•  Thank you for Supporting our Adopt-A-Families  •

Thank you so much Silver Spur for making this the best holiday for the  Huerta & Monaghan-Berthiaume families. We spent the morning with them on December 15th and they were so appreciative, thankful and excited about the gifts and the upcoming holiday season. Harbor Interfaith Services and both of these families extend their heartfelt gratitude to you all. Each contribution made a difference in their lives- from the wrapped presents to the gift cards which will continue to help them throughout the year. We are very proud to be a part of such a generous and thoughtful community that gives back to those in need.

Thank you again and Happy New Year!

•  Thank you for Supporting Samuel's Trees  •

Thank you so much Silver Spur for making this a special holiday for the families of the Neonatal Intensive Critical Care Unit (NICCU) of Children's Hospital Los Angeles. The Parkins family that founded Samuel's Trees after the loss of their son are so very thankful for our generosity. They were able to deliver 3 trees that were each populated with $300 worth of gift cards from our donations. We are so lucky to have such a generous community at Silver Spur! Thank you again and Happy New Year!
