Highland High School has created a food pantry for students and needs help stocking it! . 44% of Highland's students are food insecure, and many students are bussed from homeless shelters to Highland. Highland also has a large refugee population with 52 different languages spoken at the school. . This winter, you can help Highland's food-insecure students by taking part in the Giving Tree program. Giving Trees, built by Highland High art students, will be up during December and January at the Sprague and Anderson-Foothill Branches. Visit either branch and take a tag from the Giving Tree with a list of needed items. You can then drop off your donations at the branches to help students in need.🎄🎁❄️
