Toy Drive.
 Keep an eye out for more information about our December toy drive. This is annually one of our largest team efforts, and this year has been one of uncertainty and hardship for many families. We can help! In December we will begin collecting new toys, gift cards, and cash donations to benefit local families.

Operation Christmas Child. Youth Alive is collecting items to fill two Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for children in need. One will be for a boy, aged 5-9, and the other for a girl, aged 5-9. Donations can be dropped of at the front entrance and might include things like: socks, gloves, hats, youth small t-shirts, toothbrushes, hairbrushes, dolls, jacks, marbles, small Lego sets, Hot Wheels cars, crayons, stickers, coloring books, etc. We cannot accept toothpaste, any liquids, or any toys that include weapons. 

Coat Drive. Got any old coats lying around that you don't use anymore? We want them! From Monday, 11/16, until Tuesday, 11/24, the LHS Interact Club will be hosting a coat drive for our local Goodwill. From 7:00am until 3:00pm on weekdays, you can drop off your old coats without contact at the LHS entrance. A cold winter is approaching; please be kind enough to share!
