JLD Care Share 2021 

We had a truly amazing response to our CareShare Efforts this year and want to thank EACH AND EVERY one of you who donated money and time to make it happen. We love our Dennis Community more than words! 

Thank You!

Together, we can bring joy to children-in-need; children who would otherwise have nothing to unwrap on Christmas morning.


During the holiday season, James L Dennis Elementary adopts children in need through the Putnam City Schools CareShare program. Please help us purchase needed items and small gifts for the 9 children our school adopted as a whole. It was decided the safest way to fill needs for these children would be to collect monetary donations and task our PTO to do the shopping. We aim to donate a combination of clothing and toys to each child, and have a goal of raising $850 to help make that happen.

Please help us make the holidays special for these children.

Donate by using the button above, or through the PTO app. You can also send cash or checks (made out to “JLD PTO”) to the school in an envelope labeled as “CareShare”.


You may have heard of this program before, or remember getting information about your classroom's adopted child to aid you in shopping for them specifically. However, we know that many families in our school community are still struggling during this time. Thus, instead of adopting one child per classroom, we have adopted 9 children for our school to help as a whole. If your family wishes to adopt additional children or knows of someone that would like to help... please contact Mrs. Derryberry at the school or find more information on the CareShare program itself HERE .

Thank you for your generosity!  

-Happy Holidays Dennis Dolphins-
