PHS Gives to the Community

PHS Gives to the Community
Posted on 12/23/2014
Student CouncilDecember has been a busy month for PHS faculty and students. Our students and staff have opened their hearts and their wallets to help those in need. Multiple organizations within our school have conducted community service projects, many of which have impacted families in our community.

The PHS Angel Tree is an annual project that supports local kids and families by providing toys, clothing, shoes, and food for those in need. This project is no small task. In fact, the planning for the project begins at the beginning of November, and students begin adopting the angels so that all deliveries can be made for the holiday.

This year students and staff sponsored 101 children and 3 families in our community! Thanks to Mrs. Newsom and the PHS Business Department for heading up this very special project!
Student Council, FCA, and NHS all worked collaboratively to put together boxes for children in McDowell County. The students chose this special project to show gratitude by giving to others. The boxes contained toys, toiletries, socks, and snacks. The groups also provided baby wipes for each box and packages of diapers for those that needed them. In addition, the students wrapped the boxes and made personalized Christmas ornaments for each child.

Special thanks to Mrs. Parkins, Mrs. Stephens, and Mrs. Kingery for coordinating the project and to Kendal Sayre, Hannah Fields, and Hannah Scurlock who helped Mrs. Parkins deliver the boxes on December 12th.

This year marks our second year for the Dot Shoppe. Each year our faculty donates new and gently used items for students to give as Christmas gifts. Mrs. Parkins coordinates the sale in the library, and students can come in to shop for their families.

The Dots have put great time and effort into giving back to our community and look forward to more service endeavors in the future.
