Wylie Way Christmas & Holidays
Wylie Way Christmas & Holidays is a resource that provides gifts for Wylie ISD children and their siblings that have an identified financial need through the school district. Participants are approved by district employees at a registration event by providing proof of qualifying documentation (Medicaid, Social Security, Free/Reduced Lunch, Homelessness, SNAP, Unemployment Benefits) and verification of current enrollment of the child in our WISD database.
The event serves as the culmination of the district’s Caring and Giving portion of the Wylie Way. Each year, over 1,000 students are supported during this holiday season. Since each child may request up to 3 gifts that total no more than $150, that’s a lot of generosity shown by our staff, student groups and local community members.
Wylie Way Christmas & Holidays is similar to other holiday gift-giving programs. At registration, children are asked for their wish list. A gift tag is created, with the recipient’s gender and age, along with the wish list. The tags are then distributed to Wylie ISD campuses where they are adopted and fulfilled.
If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation, click the button below. We would designate this donation strictly to the purchase of items that children have requested whose tags were either not returned or were not adopted.
Thank you for your generosity in the spirit of taking care of one another…The Wylie Way!
