Highland Elementary School Holiday Giveaway

December 22, 2020 -- An abundance of smiles and well wishes greeted Highland Elementary School students and families as they drove through the receiving line of the annual Highland Holiday Giveaway.

The school and its partners from Safelite, Operation Warm, Second Community Church, Hogue Church, Feed The-Kids Columbus, Shoes That Fit and Whole-Foods-Arlington, showered students with plenty of holiday cheer and gifts.

 “We are having overwhelming success with our Highland Holiday Giveaway,” said Principal Shellie Deime, Highland Elementary School. “We have had over 100 cars in an hour. We simply couldn't have done this without our community partners. We are so very blessed.”

Each student received a new warm coat and hat, shoes, food for five days, a treat bag and a present that included socks, underclothes, and other surprises. Families also received a Kroger Gift Card and fresh produce.

“This has been utterly amazing, it makes me so happy,” said Deime.
