NHS Sponsors School Supply Drive for Children around the World
HCA National Honor Society students, under the direction of Mrs. Lorri Mathisen, are currently sponsoring a school supply drive which will run through Tuesday, September 6. HCA families may donate any type of new school supplies, and the items will be used later this fall in Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes created by Grace Baptist Church and Highlands Christian Academy.
“The drive began last week, and we are so excited to see the school supplies keep coming in,” says an HCA staff member. “The donation boxes are filling up, and our students are excited about sharing the gifts with other children this Christmas. One of our elementary students was so motivated to contribute, that she brought in one of all the suggested school supply items right as the drive was launched! This enthusiasm has been multiplied all over the Highlands’ campus.”
Suggested items include crayons, coloring books, pencils, pencil sharpeners, markers, and child scissors.
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian humanitarian organization that provides aid to people in physical need as a key part of Christian missionary work. For more information on Operation Christmas Child, please click HERE.
More information about how HCA families can become involved in Operation Christmas Child will be sent home in the weeks to come.
