How you can help - You can help your school win by bringing food items to your school during September 4 thru September 21, 2018. You can also bring food to the Bell vs. Trinity games on September 26 & 27, 2018. Online donations will also count $1 = 1 item.
Donated food will go to the New Hope Center and Christmas Providers. New Hope provides emergency assistance of food, clothing, and other resources to families in HEB. Christmas providers provides meals and gifts to families with children in local schools using the "adopt-a-family" approach"
