There is a menstrual product fundraiser going on at the high school until October 20th. Menstrual product items are considered a luxury and therefore many shelters do not carry them. Possible donation items include tampons, pads, panti liners and diva cups. Donations can be dropped off in the “Dignity Matters” bin in the main foyer below the front staircase. For any questions, please contact Maddie Curmi at firstname.lastname@example.org
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Box Tops are still being collected and the money raised will benefit Blake Middle School. If you have any box tops that you cut out, NOT the new scanning type, please have your student drop them off in the box in the main office of the High School. There is also a collection box at Shaws on the window sill at the self check out end.
