2015 Project Unified

Holiday Giving.png

The holidays are here and Project Unified has started! This is a RBUSD-wide event in which each school adopts families for the holidays to provide gifts and smiles to those who may be in need of support from their community during the holiday season.


There are over 50 families in need this year and our PTA has “adopted” six of these families (one per grade). Please join us in showing our community support during this holiday season by reviewing the  Project Unified 2015 Donation SignUp and providing support, as you are able.

  • All gifts should be unwrapped
  • All gifts should be left in the front office in the box marked “Project Unified” by Thursday December 10th.
  • Please clearly label the family (eg. Family #11) along with the age and gender of the child that the gifts are for
