Bull Run Middle School Holiday Giving Program


The Holiday Giving Program donation drive was a big success! We reached our goal of $5000! Because of the generous donations, we were able to extend the program to include more students and also cover extra food and drink for the luncheon! "The Counseling Department would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that helped make the student holiday trip and luncheon a huge success!  The students thoroughly enjoyed the luncheon and it truly had a "family like" feel to it with the many homemade dishes, comfort foods, and beautiful decorations all donated from our awesome staff members and parents." - The Counseling Department


Holiday Giving Program Update: we received a huge boost in donations helping us to cover the gift cards for the Holiday Giving Program!  GOAL ACHIEVED!!!! We'd like to thank everyone for the generous monetary donations as well as signing up to help donate food items for the luncheon tomorrow. This has been the biggest outpouring of support yet!

We  our BRMS community!


Each year, the Counseling Department at Bull Run Middle School has taken a group of students on a shopping trip to Walmart to buy holiday gifts for their family members. Then all return to the school for a lovely holiday luncheon organized by staff. For some, it may be their only holiday meal.

Initially funded by our teachers and the PTSO, the program has grown, and we are asking for BRMS community support.

If you are looking for a program where 100% of your donation will be used to benefit the children in our community, please consider a donation.

***TOTAL RAISED AS OF DEC 13: $5000 !!!
***GOAL: $5000

Donate Now  [This campaign has ended for 2019]

The PTSO is hoping to go above and beyond this year in raising enough funds so that the students may also purchase a gift for themselves. We encourage you to share this philanthropic opportunity with friends, family, and local businesses. Donations are tax deductible.

Or, you may leave cash/checks (made payable to BRMS) with "Holiday Giving Fund" noted on the envelope at the front office.

If you have any questions, contact the PTSO at brmsptso@gmail.com or School Counselor, Mrs. Thomas at thomasp@pwcs.edu

Annual "Holiday Giving" Student Luncheon Dec 13, 8:00-11:30 a.m. BRMS's Annual Holiday Luncheon for students participating in our Holiday Shopping Trip is Friday. We would like to invite interested parents and teachers to bring their favorite holiday dish for our students. We want the meal to seem as "family-like" as possible. Please review the Sign-Up Genius (link below) to view the dishes that are most favored by students. The holiday luncheon is Friday, December 13th. The meal will be served to students around 11:30 AM and any left-overs will be shared with the entire staff. You may drop off your dish in the morning and we will keep it warm, or cold, until serving time. By request and for the fifth year in a row, our entrée will be fried chicken. Thank you all for being such a supportive staff to our students! Sign Up!
