2019 HL-O High School Food Drive

2019 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 $3713 in cash donations equal to 11,139 items 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 top school-wide goals of $3333 = 10,000 items for a dodgeball tournament when we return from the holiday break in January and ultimately, to surpass our recent record of $4215 and 12,747 items set in 2016 for a Windom Ice Arena Field Trip.  $3 Hat Days and $3 Shake Days (not to be included as part of the individual class totals) are also part of the incentives for individuals.  The HL-O High School Cash Drive for the HL-O Food Shelf will officially run from December 2nd to December 20th.
