“Roper families are so grateful when they are able to receive a holiday gift bag for their children. Tough times have fallen on many people in our community these past couple years and having our Holiday Program has really made winter break and the holiday season special. I love seeing our students light up when they get a gift bag that they get to take home and keep. It’s an awesome program that really helps our families out during the holidays.”– Roper Elementary School Counselor
Roper Elementary Teacher says thanks
“Hello! I am a third grade teacher at Roper Elementary. I got to deliver a handful of backpacks to my students today and they were beyond excited! One boy asked if he gets to keep the backpack and when I replied yes, he said “oh my, you don’t know how much this means to me. I’ve had the same backpack since first grade. I really like this one!” My heart almost exploded as I gave him a huge hug. I wanted to pass along his excitement and say thank you so much! Your kindness was is very much appreciated!”
