Bear Creek's Chapter of the National Honor Society Collects 7-½ Tons of Food for Hopelink
NHS members posted signs and placed bins near all the classroom doors and then collected the donations each day and delivered the food to Hopelink's food bank in Redmond. Many Upper School students went "Trick-or-Canning"
In conjunction with the food drive, children's author Lois Brandt spoke at assemblies to students in grades K-6 about her book, Maddi's Fridge, a story that gently deals with childhood hunger. Ms. Brandt encouraged our students to both help feed those in need and fight to tell the stories that are dear to their hearts.
Additionally, over the past month our Middle School students have been assembling treat bags for the 300+ families who shop at Hopelink in Redmond each week. Each Advisory group decided on a theme and designed the bags, organized and decorated the bags, and then collected donations and assembled the treat bags. Last week, one representative from each Advisory traveled to Hopelink's facility in Redmond to deliver the 350+ treat bags.
