Through the generous support of one of Taft Elementary School’s deaf and hard of hearing teachers, Caryn Leingang, Congregation Shir Ha-Ma’alot in Irvine, will be donating baskets of food and clothing to 27 Taft families in need this holiday season.  Taft’s T.O.S.A., Lupe Lastra-Short, helped identify and coordinate the distribution of these baskets.  Taft parents are picking up their baskets on Sunday, December 13, 2015. Taft Elementary School is grateful to Mrs. Leingang for her involvement and to the Temple for their generous support of their families.
