Every year we will help children from our school district through four important programs. Many of these children face a Christmas with no gifts, no meal and no prospects of a festive holiday. The programs receiving our support this year are: 1. Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) 2. Program for Assisting Students in School (PASS) 3. Teenage Pregnant & Parenting Students (TAPPS) 4. Migrant Students
Impact: Every year we will help children from our school district through four important programs.
