La Puente, California (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
This week, THINK Together students in the Bassett Unified School District will receive visits from Sysco Los Angeles corporate volunteers.
Sysco Los Angeles corporate volunteers will be giving holiday gifts to all THINK Together students in the Bassett Unified School District. These gift-giving events will be a surprise to all the students.
During THINK Together’s extended learning time program, the students were asked to create and decorate an ornament that showed their favorite hobby or activity. Sysco Los Angeles’ employees used that information to then purchase holiday gifts for the THINK Together students.
The first gift-giving event hosted by Sysco Los Angeles will be on Tuesday, Dec. 18 at Van Wig Elementary from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and then at Don Julian Elementary from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The second round of gift-giving will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at Edgewood Academy from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. and then at Sunkist Elementary from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The final gift-giving event will take place on Thursday. Dec. 20 at Torch Middle School from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
