Don’t throw away those shorts!

The Art Honor Society and the Spanish Club are hosting a warm weather clothing drive.

Boxes will be located in both offices, as well as art rooms in the x-wing and room 239 and 219 in the World Language hallway.

Clothing will be hand delivered to under-served villages in Guyana, South America.
(Crissy Ramdat, senior at CHSN, and her family will be traveling to Guyana in April and driving to various remote locations to make the deliveries.)

Gently used clothing and foot-wear in all sizes are greatly in need, so please consider donating as you turn your closets over to winter items.

We have attached a flyer that can be shared with students to encourage their participation as well.

Turkeygrams Raise $120 for Heifer International

Thanks to all who participated in our Turkeygram fundraiser. We raise $120 and spread a lot of Thanksgiving smiles.

We will be using the money we raised to purchase a sheep through Heifer International (see link to the right).

Shear Joy

Entire communities depend on wool and meat from sheep. Struggling families use sheep’s wool to make clothes, or sell it for extra income. Sheep often give birth to twins or triplets and can graze even the hilliest, rockiest pastures unsuitable for other livestock.

Some Heifer families use managed grazing techniques or zero-grazing pens to protect the environment and collect manure for fertilizer, which improves soil and pasture land.

Warm in winter, cool in summer, waterproof and durable – wool is a valuable product that struggling families can use for clothing or sell for extra income.

All over the world, Heifer partners are raising sheep to advance the cause against hunger and poverty. And, through the act of Pass on the Gift, they are also sharing training and animals with other families in need.
