HOLIDAY FOOD BASKET TIMELINE AND DETAILS

Good morning, the season of kindness is already here! and so is our Holiday Food Basket drive! Each year, students join together to donate holiday food baskets to Hazelbrook families. Below you will find detailed information on our food drive timeline and suggested items that can be donated. On Tuesday December 10th all holiday food baskets will be collected.
