Our Purpose

The goal of the Christmas Baskets committee is to give back to an integral part of the Colegio Maya community: Our workers. We have had a yearly tradition of making baskets for each of our workers to show our appreciation for their work and time. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the choice to transition into an online form of collecting funds for the baskets, as an alternative to collecting the money in person. Our goal is to raise $5000, a number equivalent to what we would normally give the workers during a normal year.

Grade-Level Goals

Our goal for this semester is to raise $5000 overall for the Christmas Baskets, and that money will cover all of the necessary expenses. We will begin advertising as soon as we have been approved to do so. We have also planned fundraisers, with a raffle coming up and our "Silent Auction" currently going on. Our fundraising plan is outlined in the image to the left, and the progress tracker for each grade is included in the presentation below.
