Collecting Toys for Families in Kentucky

As we all are preparing to celebrate the holidays with our loved ones in the next few weeks HES has the opportunity to help the victims of the devastating tornadoes that ravaged Kentucky this past weekend. We have 4th grade students with family directly affected by this tragic event that would like to help spread cheer to the families in Kentucky. They are coordinating with Toys for Tots to collect toys to deliver and spread joy to those children who have lost everything. If you feel you can help in any way please send toys to school by Thursday, Dec. 16th. Thank you for your support.
