Opportunities for Kindness

Graduation Caps and Gowns

Both NV and SV high school will have new caps and gowns this year for graduating seniors. In planning ahead they realize that the cost may be difficult for some families. 

Would you be able to help with this expense for some of the students?

After graduation these caps and gowns will be put into a ‘borrowing library’ for future students in years to come. 

Each set costs $83 and any donation large or small will help toward blessing our Sylvania graduates.

If you can donate any amount please fill out information below….Thank you🎓
