2022 Bagley Giving Circle – How can I support the Giving Circle?

The Giving Circle is a confidential program that provides an opportunity for Bagley families to help each other during the holidays. We’ve received gift requests from Bagley families in need of support and compiled a Wish List. Please contact your PTA volunteer coordinator, Janna Reynoso, at bagleygivingcircle@gmail.com with any questions.

You can help brighten the holidays for another Bagley family in a few different ways:

  • Purchase a gift from the Amazon Wish List
    • When you purchase an item from the Wish List, it will be sent directly to the Giving Circle coordinator for distribution to families in December. Please order gifts by November 28, include a gift receipt but skip the option to have gifts wrapped (families will receive supplies to wrap gifts themselves), and do not purchase any gifts with an estimated arrival after December 7 to ensure gifts can be delivered to families on time. **** If you wish to buy the gift elsewhere or choose to purchase a different item, please be sure to click the “Buying this gift elsewhere?” link and select the option to “mark item as purchased” to avoid duplicates.
    • Gifts purchased elsewhere can be deposited in the Giving Circle collection bin in the school entryway until December 1. Gifts should be unwrapped and labeled with the tag number (i.e., #7B) from the Wish List to identify which child the gift is for. Please include a gift receipt if possible.
  • Purchase a $25 gift card from Fred Meyer

Winter Swap Market and Movie Night: Friday December 2nd

Our next event is a Winter Movie Night and Swap Market. Our Winter Swap Market is a chance for all families to bring gently used clothing, toys and other gift items to school. We will set the items out ‘market style’ for families to shop for free winter gifts and clothing while their children are watching a movie. We’ll also have our Giving Circle gifts available for pick up or delivery on this night.
