Hygiene Drive

Make Sure to Be Giving This Thanksgiving

   Our school is hosting a hygiene drive through all of November. The products being donated will be sent out to the OC Rescue Mission, an institution who provides help for families and people in need. 

   The items you can donate include soap bars, undergarments, diapers, washcloths, deodorants, feminine hygiene products, and more. Donation boxes are located in the Library and Rooms 406, 504, 204, 326, 801, 932, A-16, and the office. Flyers have been distributed around the school with information about the drive.

   We encourage students to donate what they can to help families during this thanksgiving season. 

These donations will help many people get on the right path. If you are not able to donate, volunteering is always an option. You can help in the kitchen or help parents and children as well as many other areas. 

   The OC Rescue Mission has helped many families who have been struggling and it is our duty as a community to help them help others. There are stories about people who have benefited greatly due to donations. There is no discrimination based on gender, religions, and sexualities. They provide housing and other resources to make life easier for others. 

   Make sure during this season of giving you do what you can to help others. It will be greatly appreciated by many, not just those you are helping. And, the class that brings in the most donations will earn extra points for Spirit Week!
