Arranging decorative donation bins and money boxes, StuCo hopes to allure the hearts of parents and students to contribute their cash and food so another family may experience holiday joy. 

Student Council representative Paige VanWagenen encourages the heart of donating, “[The donations] will help families in need and provide people with the opportunity to have a nice dinner with friends and family.”

Donations can be in the form of non-perishable goods, monetary donations, or coins. The class with the greatest number of donations receives early admission to a school assembly where prizes and goodies will be tossed to the crowd. 

Other bonuses include shaving the hair off of staff members Mr. O’Brien, Mr. Sandoval, and Mr. Jurekovic if enough money is contributed. 

Go the extra mile and donate. Loose change can save a family, as one dollar can feed 6 hungry people in the community.
