News from Hughes – March 9, 2018
Dear JTM Students and Parents,
Our names are Haley Gaw, Jinny Deppen, and Rachael Bennett. Our IB project is focusing on children in the MNPS district who are in shelters or in poverty. Many of these young children go day by day without the essentials that most other students take for granted. Many of these kids struggle with no place to call home. Our group is working with the HERO Program (Homeless Education Program Overview), which is amazing because they help the children who face these struggles.
We are hosting a Spring Food Drive where we are asking for donations from March 12-16. All of these generous donations will be given to the HERO Program, where they will help families in the MNPS school district who are in need. We are asking for donations of the following items:
- Peanut Butter
- Granola Bars (various flavors)
- Fruit Cups
- Cereal Bars
- Cheese or Peanut Butter Crackers
Note: We are ADVERTISING in the car line March 12-13 from 7:30am-8:40
We will be COLLECTING in the car line March 12-16 from 7:30am-8:40am
Donation Boxes will be located in front of the office throughout the week! Feel free to drop of foods!
Thank you so much! We appreciate you taking time out of your day to help our community!
