Holiday Nut & Candy Sale - In this season of giving, now is the time to support the Elms Family Fund and purchase easy holiday gifts: fresh, handmade candies and nuts from the Peanut Shoppe. Locally operated since the 1930’s in downtown Akron, the Peanut Shoppe is partnering with Our Lady of the Elms Panther Pride Club and the Lower School PTO to support the students of OLE. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to The Elms Family Fund, which provides financial assistance for individual students in order to offer equal opportunities and help girls achieve their greatest potential. Funds are anonymously requested by teachers and given confidentially to individual Elms girls on an as-needed basis. In the past, the fund has paid for such expenses as field trip fees and school supplies. For this holiday sale, nuts and candies will be freshly packaged in gift-wrapped holiday boxes and delivered to students on Friday, December 14. For more details and to place an order, see flyer.

Help the Elms earn money and bring your paper recyclables (catalogs, mails, newspapers, hard and soft bound books, phone books, brown paper bags and flattened cardboard) to our bin in the Lower School parking lot during this time frame.
