Support Westerly Hills, Lakewood, during holidays

November 14, 2019

Share the spirit of Christmas with our partner schools, Westerly Hills Academy and Lakewood Preschool, in multiple ways.


  • Thanks to your generosity the last two years, each student at Westerly Hills Academy went home for the holidays with books to add to their home libraries. Again this year we will stage a free book fair at Westerly Hills Academy on Thursday, December 19, where students may choose three books to take home and read over winter break. Studies have shown that children who choose their own books are more engaged in what they are reading, read more for pleasure and ultimately perform better in school as a result. Sign up here to help out. Contribute on Sunday mornings, November 24 through December 15, to purchase books. FPC can purchase books at a deep discount through a partnership with Scholastic, so your financial contribution maximizes our purchasing power.


Teacher appreciation

  • Also this year, we will collect donations for holiday gifts for teachers and staff member at Westerly Hills and Lakewood. Signups for teacher appreciation goodies and gift cards are available on our Shop to Share signup. In addition, we are working with our church schools’ families to provide gifts for students.


Shop to Share

  • Sign up online for December donations to this effort for our partner schools, Lakewood Preschool and Westerly Hills Academy. Shop to Share provides a monthly shopping list created from our partners’ most-needed items. You can place your items in the shopping cart in the hallway behind the sanctuary to be delivered to the school.
