Last Saturday, Hatboro-Horsham High School's 106-member student council, along with a diverse group of students and teachers, scoured the school district for brown paper bags, set outside for the club's annual food drive, Feed-A-Friend.
The Saturday before, we dropped off a bag to every Horsham and Hatboro house, each bag with stapled information. As a result of the fog and rain last Saturday, we have been informed that many community members did not set out their bags. We expect that many are instead opting to do so this Saturday, which we said on the attached paper was the collection day if dangerous weather conditions presented risks to collection.
While we did collect many bags this past weekend, we would like to ensure that we can donate as much as we can to the needy families of our community. To do so, we will also be going around the district to collect bags this Saturday morning (Dec. 15).
If you are able to contribute to these families' well-being this holiday season by contributing packaged food, new toys, and/or monetary donations, please place a paper bag by the end of your driveway by 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. Donations may also be dropped off to the main offices of the district's schools. We ask that you drop your bag off to one of these locations by Dec. 19, or early Dec. 20 at the absolute latest.
We are grateful for every donation, regardless of its size or amount, for each is distributed to our neighbors- less-fortunate families within our own community.
We would like to extend our very sincere appreciation to the community for its continuous generousity throughout the many years of Feed-A-Friend.
Feed-A-Friend is an iniative of Hatboro-Horsham Senior High School's Student Council. It is the largest community service project within the high school. Many students and staff members from other activities also contribute a lot of energy to it.
Toys are being donated as a part of Magical Mornings, which works hand-in-hand with Feed-A-Friend. Senior Kylie Geller has devoted much effort to Magical Mornings, which this year, is her graduation project.
Student Council is advised by Dave and Sue Ellen Thomas, both teachers at the high school. Its officers are President Sean Raymond, Vice President Meredith Lightstone, Secretary Jenny Zhuang, Treasurer Dennis Mulligan, and Internal Vice President Varun Nair.
