Service Opportunities

Breck promotes various service opportunities going on at the school. Check back often as this page will be updated regularly.

Angel Tree

Breck Middle School has adopted the families from Little Earth Baby's Space, one of their service partners. This local organization needs help providing holiday presents for children and adults. An Angel Tree will be in the Middle School Library decorated with ornaments representing individual wish lists. The Breck community is invited to participate by choosing an ornament and shopping for gifts. If your family would like to sponsor more than one individual or an entire family, please see Angie Kritta (contact information below). 

Lower and Middle School students need a signed permission slip to choose an ornament. Permission slips are available HERE and in the MS Library. 

All presents should be wrapped and returned to the Middle School Library by Friday, December 15.

Questions? Contact Angie Kritta.

Winter Wear Collection

'Tis the season to share! Breck Lower School is collecting Warm Winter Wear for children experiencing homelessness. We're looking for donations of coats, jackets, snow pants, boots, gloves and mittens for children ages 5-10. Donations can be new or gently used and can be delivered to classrooms or to our Service Shelf located near the Middle/Lower School Entrance. Donation deadline has been extended: Monday, December 18. Thank you for sharing!
