Currently Seeking Auction Items!  

We are looking for auction items for our upcoming annual fundraiser on May 1st.

If you own a business or have goods or services you can offer, or even a timeshare or vacation home, we would be so thankful for your donation.

Empty baskets for filling with auction items are also a great help. If you have one or several you could spare, we will gladly take them off your hands. Please donate your empty baskets to the front office by April 1st! 

Should you have any further questions, please contact:

Jenni Schweitzer
(805) 497-7501 ext 1003

Annie Kauffman
(805) 497-7501 ext 1006

Thank you for loving
Hillcrest with us!
AN EMPTY BASKET IS A SAD BASKET!

Let us flip your basket's frown, upside-down!

Just pass your sad baskets along to Mrs. Schweizer in the front office and they will be filled with joy and given a new home.
$581.61 GIVEN TO HCS FROM AMAZONSMILE!!
To date, we have been able to raise $581.61 for Hillcrest, just by our families using the HCS AmazonSmile donation link.
JUST THINK...if every one of us used our HCS AmazonSmile link, instead of the regular amazon.com how much more we could earn for our school.
If you are currently using the amazon.com app, you can easily save the AmazonSmile link to your desktop or home screen and use it just like the app!!! In doing so, you would be contributing 0.5% of your order to be donated to Hillcrest!
REMEMBER, ONLY PURCHASES MADE AT smile.amazon.com and NOT the Amazon mobile app generate AmazonSmile donations.
Please email the HCS Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@hillcrestcs.org to let her know the day
and time you'd like to volunteer at Hillcrest!

PLEASE REMEMBER TO LOG YOUR HOURS IN THE HCS VOLUNTEER LOG BOOK! IT IS LOCATED IN THE MAIN OFFICE LOBBY. YOU WILL DEFINITELY WANT THOSE HOURS COUNTED BEFORE THE END OF THE SEMESTER GETS TOO CLOSE! :o)
