GIFT CARDS FOR GROCERIES DRIVE STILL GOING
Thank you for all who have donated, please keep the gift cards coming...

Some of our Willard families are food insecure and the impacts of the pandemic have exacerbated the needs of even more families. The Willard PTA is hosting a virtual food drive to help ensure that all families in our Willard community can put food on the table.  Please help us by purchasing gift certificates in small denominations (think $10, $25, $50) to local grocery stores such as Safeway, Berkeley Bowl, Whole Foods or your favorite place to shop for food.

Gift cards can be mailed to Willard Middle School ℅ Bryan Grau, Vice Principal, 2425 Stuart Street, Berkeley, CA 94705 or dropped in the Willard main office M-F 8:30-3 or e-cards can be emailed to bryangrau@berkeley.net.  

The need is urgent so please don’t delay.
Thank you for your support!
