Annual Toy and Clothing Drive

With the holidays upon us, it is time for Walnut Acres to reach out to the larger community with our Annual Toy and Clothing Drive benefiting Shore Acres Elementary School. We will be accepting donations of gently used toys and clothing December 4th to 8th in front of the office.  

All sizes and types of clothing (except undergarments) for infants to adults are requested as well as toys and books. We kindly ask that clothing be free of stains and tears. As a guide, donate only what you would be comfortable giving to a friend. 

We also need volunteers (adults and students) to assist in sorting donations December 6th-12th and delivering the donations to Shore Acres in your minivan or SUV on Friday, December 15th. Please email to let us know how you can help. 

Sorting Shifts

Saturday, 12/9 from 10am-12pm & 2pm-4pm
Sunday,  12/10 from 2pm-4pm

Additional shifts will be posted at a later date

Donation Delivery

Upcoming Community Service Drives in 2018

Food Drive:  April 16th through April 20th

Darcie Jones Book Drive:  May 14th to May 18th

Darcie Jones Book Drive 

This book drive was named after Darcie Jones, a Walnut Acres parent who started a book drive in the Spring of 1994 to benefit Meadow Homes Elementary School in Concord. She died of cancer on December 31, 1996. The PFC renamed the book drive "The Darcie Jones Book Drive" and planted a tree outside the 3rd grade wing in honor of all that she had contributed to Walnut Acres.
