Conner's Cause for Children is a small San Diego based non-profit organization founded over 18 years ago in memory of Conner Champ. Each year, Conner's Cause for Children provides critical financial assistance to over 400 families struggling to cover the out of pocket costs of caring for a child with a life-threatening illness or injury. They make sure that no child goes without medical services or proper in-home care because of a family's lack of resources. You can click here to learn more about Conner's Cause.

For the past 12 years, The Grauer School has partnered with Conner's Cause for the holidays. This year, The Grauer School has once again adopted 100 Conner's Cause kids and has promised to send them holiday presents from our Grauer "angels." Would you consider helping out this holiday season and purchasing a holiday gift for a child with a life-threatening illness whose parents are struggling to cover the costs of caring for him/her?

To participate, we request that our Grauer students:

  1. Sign up for a Conner's Cause child on the list in Grauer's office.
  2. Purchase one or more age-appropriate holiday gifts for the child (you may wish to send small gifts to the child's siblings too, though it's not required).
  3. Bring all of your unwrapped presents to The Grauer School's Holiday Charity and Musical Event on Thursday, December 7 from 3:15-4:15pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to wrap their gifts, enjoy snacks, and listen to holiday-themed musical performances from our talented Visual and Performing Arts department.
  4. Please mail the gifts to your Conner's Cause family. The school will have priority mail boxes available for you to use at the Holiday Charity and Musical Event.

In addition to knowing that they did something to brighten someone's holiday, all participating students will earn one-hour of community service for participating in Conner's Cause this year. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jessi Brown, Humanitarian Service Coordinator, or Dana Abplanalp-Diggs. Thanks, we look forward to your participation again this year.
