Get ready to give, Bobcats . . .
Next Wednesday (November 23), Social Handprints Overcoming Unjust Treatments (SHOUT) is hosting the third annual Day of Giving.
The Day of Giving is an opportunity for middle and high school students to serve the community on the half-day before Thanksgiving break as a way of giving back to the community and contributing to the spirit of the thankful season.
This year there are numerous choices of service to fit the interests of any middle or high school student. This year’s activities include caroling, filling bags for the Women’s Center, making holiday cards for Children’s Hospital patients, creating the Best Buddies Care Closet, Midland clean-up, and so much more!
SHOUT president senior Gary Liu said, “This year’s Day of Giving has been simpler to plan but still stressful. Although we cut down a lot of the activities, we are expanding to help out at Midland which is what I’m very excited for! And we have also received a good amount of sponsorships!”
SHOUT is co-sponsored by English teachers Mrs. Heather Bixler and Ms. Aimee Firmani.
Next Wednesday students report to school as usual, but after checking in to their first period class they head to the auditorium for a brief meeting before dispersing to their respective service locations. Some students will meet at various points around the school while others will board buses to take them to off-site locations. The event concludes around 11 a.m. when students are dismissed for the Thanksgiving break.
We can’t wait to see the good that these students bring to the community. Happy Thanksgiving!
