Student Leadership Board

Student Leadership is asking for donations to put together care packages for homeless people in Chicago. We are asking for coats, hand sanitizer, gloves, deodorant, gift cards to fast food restaurants, blankets, water bottles, feminine products, protein bars, mini first aid kits, chapstick, socks and underwear, and hand warmers. Please bring all items to the main office.

Students will be making the trip to Chicago on March 1st to hand out these care packages. We are very proud of our students for coming up with such a thoughtful idea and they are excited to expand our kind and caring community beyond Big Hollow. Please help support our students goals.
