RUSD Holiday Basket Program

For the past 44 years, Rowland employees celebrate the holidays by supporting the HOLIDAY BASKET PROGRAM which helps nearly 250 RUSD families in need. This donation is carried out through the joint efforts of the students of Nogales, Santana and Rowland High School’s Interact Clubs, Nogales and Santana High School’s ASB, employees of RUSD, members of the Walnut Valley Rotary Club, and other community volunteers.

      The Community can help by donating Canned Goods at our school sites for the baskets to be collected now until Wednesday, December 10. Suggested donations (No glass please): pasta, canned fruits and vegetables, beans, soup, rice, canned tuna, meat, pudding, juices, and baby food. Letters are below with additional information.

   We encourage every employee to support this worthwhile program by donating at least $2. *Please make checks payable to HOLIDAY BASKETS. You may make your voluntary contribution directly to your immediate supervisor now until Friday, December 5. All proceeds will be collected by Rita Garcia, Executive Secretary, Administrative Services in the District Office.      

This local community projects depends on the generosity and support of individuals and groups who wish to share the spirit of the holidays. We thank everyone for their support!
