Clubs from across the campus contributed funds to provide Thanksgiving baskets to service employees including custodians, cafeteria workers, and maintenance and security personnel.
The Scots were able to raise more than $6,000 to provide 55 employees with a turkey or ham, a pie and a $100 gift card for groceries. HPHS senior and Community Service Council President Elya Khakpour said, “Service employees do an incredible amount of work for us students. We were thrilled to be able to collaborate with clubs across the school to contribute to such a good cause.”
There are many ways for students to get involved in serving the community. HPHS senior and Community Service Vice President Olivia Fox noted, “We encourage students to join a club and get involved in something that they (students) are passionate about. The true gift is knowing that you are helping someone.”
