L. H. Rather's Operation Christmas Wish

Big picture

In 2017, LHR decided to start a new tradition and help make Christmas a little brighter for junior high students since most Christmas "angel" efforts focus on the little children at elementary campuses often overlooking adolescents. Tori Whitlock, LHR StuCo Sponsor, has worked hard each year to improve the Operation Christmas Wish project.


This year, gifts were purchased for 40 LHR students. Student Council members were given a list of "required" items to shop for as well as a list of "wants" they could select for their assigned "angel".


The goal of this project is two fold. Primarily it is to provide Christmas gifts for our students in need. Secondarily, it gives our Student Council members a wonderful opportunity to serve others and gain a deeper understanding of the spirit of giving. It is amazing to see how many students, staff, business and community organizations support this project and to see the joy on the faces of our student shoppers and the families of the "angels".
