Holiday Food Drive

 

2018 HL-O High School Food Drive

 

The HL-O High School senior class student council members have been planning and preparing for the annual HL-O High School Food Drive which would be better named the HL-O High School Cash Drive for the HL-O Food Shelf.  Cash donations have been and always will be the best to not only reach our goals ($1 = 3 items) but also for the HL-O Food Shelf because they can purchase needed food products from their food bank provider at a lower cost.  Last year we collected $2456 in cash donations for this community service project and the senior class student council members are challenging the student body and their families, the residents of the HL-O school district and all of the area businesses to make a generous donation to our project.  Goals with rewards have been developed for individual classes to meet and we have set a top school-wide goal of 10,000 items for a dodgeball tournament when we return from the holiday break in January.  Ultimately, we would like to surpass our recent record of $4215 and 12,747 items set in 2016. 

The HL-O High School Cash Drive for the HL-O Food Shelf will officially run from November 26th to December 21st but donations would most definitely be accepted early or late.  Donations can be dropped off at the HL-O High School or written and sent to HL-O High School Student Council, 124 N. Minnesota Ave., Okabena  MN  56161.  It is the season for giving and these gifts definitely stay in the local community.  Please consider.  Thank you!
