Hello Ospreys,

AHS Student Council is excited to announce our Holidays with Heart Gift Drive in partnership with 4 The Children, a local organization that provides advocacy and support for children and families in crisis in our region. All donations we collect through the Gift Drive will directly support 4 the Children's mission to protect childhood today for stronger families tomorrow.

We need your support & donations to help make the holiday season a bit brighter for 6 local families!

Family #1: 4 members with a 5 year old girl and 4 year old boy
Family #2: 3 members with a 7 year old boy and 4 year old boy
Family #3: 4 members with a 12 year old boy, 9 year old boy, 7 year old girl
Family #4: 4 members with a 10 year old girl, 7 year old boy, 6 year old girl
Family #5: 3 members with an 11 year old girl and 9 year old girl
Family #6: 6 members with a 9 year old girl, 6 year old girl, and 2 year old girl

Please view the full Holidays with Heart Gift Drive Family Wish List here, choose a child or family to support and bring your contributions to the AHS Main Office by next Friday, December 10!

Student Council will wrap the gifts at their Ospreys on Ice Holiday Party that evening at Chapman Ice Rink, and deliver everything to 4 the Children so they can distribute our donations to the 6 families.

We know it's a busy time of year but we hope that your family can help us help other families in need this holiday season. Thank you in advance for your support!
