The SGA has once again teamed up with the United States Marine Corp for its annual Toys for Tots drive. Please keep in mind the children in need in Montgomery County when shopping this holiday season. We are collecting unwrapped, new gifts valued around $10 for children ranging from ages 2 to 17. The drive runs from December 2nd through December 13th. Because our food drive was so successful as a House vs House competition we have decided to do the same for Toys for Tots. There will be a box for each House in the Falcon Foyer. The House to fill their box first wins. Thank you in advance for your support.
The American Red Cross Blood Drive is December 11th in the Old Gym. Anyone 16 or above can donate. Please check the height and weight requirements for blood donation. One bag of blood can save three lives. Email email@example.com to sign up. Please donate.
Students interested in attending the December 10th MCR meeting must register via the bit.ly by Friday, 12/5 at 5pm.
