Holiday Hygiene Drive

As you know, our KIN program’s Service Learning Project for this school year topic is homelessness. The McKinney Project with Family Support Service which is part of the district was one drive we decided take part in. Family Support Services provides assistance for students and their families with a variety services. Which include food, hygiene products, school supplies, and uniforms. We had the opportunity to participate in the McKinney Holiday Hygiene Drive, in two weeks we were able to collect a grand total of one hundred and eighty items for Family Support Services. I would like to thank all of the parents that helped us accomplish our goals in the contribution we provided. The students were excited to know that they were helping those in need.
