Optimists to support new home library at Jefferson along with “Shoes and Coats that Fit”  

Jefferson Early Childhood Center will soon have a new home library thanks to support from the Moline Breakfast Optimist Club.  Optimist members will present the school with a $1,500 donation to help build a home library for students and their families on Wednesday, November 29, at 9:30 am at the center located at 3010 – 26th Avenue. 

Students will build their own “Pete the Cat” library by participating in the Jefferson classroom literacy group.  Each month, students will have the chance to take home a “Pete the Cat” book after returning the monthly literacy group book and journal activity.  The Optimist donation will assist in funding the “Pete the Cat” books.  Jefferson students will have the opportunity to earn eight books for their home library.

Optimist members will also present Jefferson students with a new pair of sneakers and/or coat (including hats and mittens) on that same day.   This is an annual event for the Optimist Club, which uses fundraising and member donations to fund the “Shoes and Coats that Fit” program.  The club has provided over 1,500 pairs of shoes and over 200 coats to students at Jefferson since the program began 18 years ago.

MHS Kicks Off Annual Share Joys Campaign

The Moline High School Share Joys campaign will take place December 11 – 15.  This year’s events will kick off with a Donut Eating Contest, sponsored by Donut Delight, on Wednesday, December 6, at 7:00 a.m. in the East Gym at Moline High School.  Shopping for the students will take place on December 17 at JC Penney, Moline.    

The Moline High School Share Joys program has raised over $1,161,552 since 1949 for children in need from Moline-Coal Valley Schools.  Last year, Moline High School students and staff, together with the community, raised over $51,650.00 to clothe more than 270 children who needed assistance.

Contributions of any amount are currently being accepted for the 2017 Share Joys campaign. Every dollar that is contributed will go directly toward helping make this holiday season happier for Moline School District children. Checks can be made payable  to Moline High School Share Joys, and can be sent to Allison Ryser, Moline High School, 3600 Avenue of the Cities, Moline, IL 61265.
