The Stars for Service Holiday Food Drive Has Begun!
The Kennett Food Cupboard is in need of food for the holiday season and the Stars for Service are pitching in to help our community. 
Please help by donating canned and packaged food.
Food can be dropped off in the marked boxes in the lobby and pick up area until December 15.
Thank you for your support!

UCFSD Community Service gives away gently used warm coats, fleece jackets, hats, mittens/gloves and snow pants to local families in need. Donated items can be dropped off in the lobbies of any of the UCF district schools now until Thursday 12/17.  Items should be clean and in good condition. All styles and sizes are needed. New items are also gladly accepted!

***One or two parent volunteers from Unionville Elementary are needed to help w/ the annual District-wide coat drive. ***

We would really like to get someone from UE involved in the Coat Drive.The Coat Drive has already begun and a box was placed in the UE lobby a few weeks ago. This would involve picking up the coats from UE when the box gets full, storing and sorting the coats by size and delivering the coats to the Event on Friday December 18 for sorting. Hundreds of families benefit from this effort any help you can provide us would be greatly appreciated!!
Please contact Katie Nichols at

Unionville Ice Hockey Club Holiday Fundraiser
We are excited to announce that this year we are sponsoring a "Holiday Greens Fundraiser" to support the Unionville Ice Hockey Club. Our hope is to raise money to support ice time and league fees moving forward and also to ensure that any child within the Unionville Chadds Ford School District that desires to play the great game of hockey can afford to do so.

In order to do this we need your help! This year the club has decided to keep the fundraiser simple. All sales are processed online via our personalized and secure fundraiser website. There are a number of beautiful items to choose from including holiday wreaths, centerpieces, greens and other accessories. Shipping is included in the price you see online and you can choose your ship date to ensure you receive the freshest products delivered right to your door. The best part is the club will receive 20% of every purchase made.Just click on the link below to make your purchase!
