Holiday Shopping

Hello everyone and Happy Holidays!! The annual Meredith Holiday shop is almost here.  The holiday shop gives your kids a chance to go shopping for the whole family – all items are under $5.00.  We need volunteers for this fun event.  Please sign up here or contact Lisa Chilinskas

Holiday shopping just got easier! California Pizza Kitchen will donate 10% of all gift card purchases to Meredith School! Use the link to buy gift cards while supporting Meredith School.

If you are using Amazon for holiday shopping, be sure to follow the Amazon Smile Link for all of your shopping. Select Meredith School as your charity. A portion of your purchase comes back to the school.

And be sure to check our web site before you shop! Several online vendors will support Meredith if you visit their page by clicking on a link through our website — we’ll be adding more as we find them. Newly added: Everlane.
