Food + Toiletry Drive
The PTO is hosting a Food + Toiletry Drive!
Starting Monday, November 7th, the Scholls Heights PTO will be partnering with our McKinney Vento Office (formerly HELP Center) to collect items for BSD students experiencing housing instability. So far this year they have already received 700 student referrals and are running out of donations to distribute.
Here are the items they are requesting:
laundry detergent pods
quarters for laundry
shampoo & conditioner
gift cards in $20 increments to Target, Fred Meyer and Winco
Specific food items could be anything kid friendly requiring little preparation (ex: peanut butter, crackers, bread, soup, mac & cheese, etc.) All donations will be distributed to Scholls Heights families first and any surplus will be donated to the Conestoga Food Pantry and the BSD McKinney Vento Office. Any donation, no matter how small, makes a big difference!
We will be running this food drive until November 16th, at which point the school staff will sort and distribute food boxes. We will have a labeled collection bin in front of the school near the front office.
We are also opening our Square account to those who might want to contribute monetarily. The Scholls Heights teachers and staff will use these funds to shop for perishable items immediately before delivery to ensure these families have access to fresh foods as well. Click here to donate $$
Thank you for supporting our Scholls Heights Community!
