Just over 50 families received Thanksgiving meals along with a gift card this past Saturday. Thanks to the efforts of our community, parents, students, teachers and staff we were able to help. We want to thank everyone for donating food, gift cards and their time. We had a local family donate lunch for all of our volunteers as well.
We would like to thank the AHS UNICEF Club, the AMS Student Council & NJHS members, the Hawkesworth family and the AMS Girl Scouts. Special thanks to everyone for your efforts in helping with this community service event. #TogetherWeAreArgyle
