We need your help in making a child’s Secret Snowman wish come true!


To sponsor a child:

  • Your sponsored Chavez child’s Secret Snowman letter will be sent home with your District 35 student. If you have siblings in the district, please specify ONLY ONE student when registering and we will send the letter home with the specified child.

  • Shop for one or more of the items on your sponsored child’s wish list. We estimate all gifts in each child’s wish list total approximately $30.

  • You must also LABEL each gift with the sponsored student’s NAME & NUMBER listed on your Secret Snowman letter. (The letter will contain a number in the upper left corner)
