Horizon Honors Elementary Student Council is hosting a holiday food drive and working with Phoenix Rescue Mission and their "Fill-A-Bag" program.  The Fill-A-Bag program is designed to meet the needs of families and individuals in the Phoenix metro area who are homeless, in crisis, and in transition by providing healthy, non-expired food through our Community Market, emergency food services, and city outreach initiatives.  Please help us to collect non-perishable items so that we can begin filling bags today and sending them off to families in need. We will be collecting now through December 7th. We are encouraging families to use this as an opportunity to help your child understand the importance of service and gratitude.  Encourage your child to gather their spare change or money earned and go shopping together. Work with your child to find the best deals and think about how to provide healthy choices on a budget. Before donating your items, ask your child to write a special message on the item or affix a note of holiday wishes.  We are also collecting holiday cards or words of encouragement that you can create as a family. The items we are collecting for each bag/box are: 1 box of cereal, 2 cans of hearty soup, 1 box of rice/pasta, 2 cans of beans, peanut butter, 2 cans of tuna, 2 cans of vegetables, 2 cans of canned meat, 4 packages of Ramen noodles, 1 box of Saltine Crackers, 3 rolls of toilet paper, 1 bar of soap and 1 tube of toothpaste.  Please feel to bring in individual items or fill any paper/cloth bag with the listed items as another option.



As you begin to switch over your closets to your winter wardrobes please set aside any warm clothing items that no longer fit your children or yourself.  We are looking for coats, hats, shirts, pants, gloves, and scarves. The Clothes Cabin would also appreciate the following items: children's clothing sizes 6 to 14, new underwear for men and women, socks for women/men/children, maternity clothes, blankets and towels. You can drop these items off in the bins near the MPR right after the Thanksgiving break.  Thank you for your help and support!
