Holiday Giving

for Santa Teresa families in need

The Student Family Center Coordinator and Social Worker at STHS, Ms Rachel Bull Ghezzi, LCSW, PPSC, has discovered an opportunity for the community to help others in need during the holidays. We have several families in need of various donations.


You can help in one of two ways:

  1. Visit the Amazon Wishlist (https://amzn.to/3nkx8Ce) and make your purchase directly with items shipping directly to school.

  2. Donate through the Santa Teresa Parent Teacher Organization (ST PTO) by check or Venmo and we’ll do the shopping for you.


Checks can be dropped off at the STHS front office (Snell entrance).

Please mark monetary donations as “Holiday Giving”.


Venmo: Santa Teresa-PTO

Checks: Payable to ST PTO


Please don't delay.  It is preferred to deliver items to families by the break on Dec 17th.


All funds and items will be used for the STHS families in need.
