We are 6 weeks away from AP exams and 8 weeks away from the end of the trimester. In order to maintain a productive study environment, students who choose to use their drop periods or free time to watch videos or play video games are asked to use the commons.
Humanitas is going to collect supplies for a local charity called Soap N’ Hope that is led by our very own Amelie Kadackal! On Day of Service, we are going to package and personalize the items we collect for the charity!
In case you didn’t know, Soap N’ Hope collects small, travel sized versions of essential hygiene products (soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, etc.) as well as feminine hygiene products and adult diapers. These are placed in a Ziploc bag alongside a small note of kindness to connect with the recipient. The bags are then dropped off at women’s shelters in Cabarrus/Mecklenburg County. Please help us to collect these donations!
