Students and Staff Bring Hope to North Tech
Project Hope, a community outreach program, has been a beacon of light in North County during the holiday season for many years. By providing much needed food, clothing, gifts, and emotional support to local families, Project Hope has made a profound impact in the lives of hundreds of people.
Once again this year, the staff and students of North Tech have teamed up with Project Hope to bring joy to as many of our schools’ families as possible. Through heartfelt donations and the dedicated efforts of school social workers Ms. Sherman and Mr. Devrouax, Project Hope will be able to assist over twenty families. The variety of requests received is heartwarming and strays from typical gift requests. No matter what is asked for, whether a pair of socks or a memorial for a loved one, the mission remains the same and our team will work hard to find a way to make it happen. Without the generosity of our students, staff, and anonymous outside donors, none of this would be possible.
Ms. Sherman and Mr. Devrouax are incredibly pleased to report “that over 25% of North Tech staff have offered to help in some capacity.” In addition to donating money, our staff has also volunteered to go shopping and wrap gifts for the families and students. A special thank you should be extended to the students in the CISCO Networking class for their sizable donation. Each year, the students in CISCO work hard selling water to the staff and students at North Tech to help raise funds for needs within the classroom. This year, they decided to use a portion of that money to help other students in need. Great job, guys!
If you would like to make a donation or volunteer, please contact Ms. Sherman @7615 or Mr. Devrouax @7607.
