This is the third year that we have provided Christmas dinner for DHS families, and the number we are doing has doubled!! The FFA Chapter is providing the turkeys, and Skills USA is doing all the canned goods, including vegetables, sweet potatoes, and cranberry sauce. This year for the first time, Student Council will be baking pies. We received a sizable donation from Susie Ammann (Lions Club and all her friends!) and we bought extra turkeys, and will purchase bags of potatoes, and stuffing. The Pioneer 4-H club made a donation, and we will use it to buy reusable bags for each family.
This year, we are planning on providing 50 meals, and we really want to thank teachers and the counseling department for identifying families who will benefit from the goodies. So, if you have a student in any of the organizations in your classes, ask them about the event. They are all really passionate about helping our DHS families at Christmas!
