Dear Parents and BHS Community Members,

First off – a big thanks to those donors who have already contributed.  Your generosity is helping us on our way to make a bigger and better Holiday Meal than ever.

The annual Holiday Meal will take place on Saturday, December 10.  This special event features over 100 BHS students serving a warming meal, offering clothing, books, shoes, toys, blankets and providing entertainment for some 300-500 homeless or low-income people and families in the Berkeley community.  

We are seeking fresh food or monetary donations to help us put on this special event.  

What we are most in need at this point is pre-cooked hams, potato or yam-based dishes, green salads or vegetable dishes, and canned/packaged foods such as tuna, soups or pastas.  Canned foods can be sent to school with students.  Bins are located just inside the main doors at Milvia and Allston, in the C-building art gallery and the G-H buildings breezeway.  Help us meet our goal of one pound per student or 3400 pounds of food!

Monetary donations are also a huge help to buy basics such as butter, sugar, flour, foil and other food to round out our meal.  They will also help us cover decorations and entertainment to make this not only a belly filling but heartwarming experience for those that attend.  

Fresh food donations can be delivered between 4:30pm-7pm on Friday, December 9 or 8am-12pm of Saturday, December 10 to the main doors of the school at Milvia and Allston.  Please indicate what time you would like deliver your donation.  

Monetary donations are accepted as cash in the Leadership Office (make sure it gets to Mr. Young) or as checks written to "BHS Student Activities" with "Holiday Meal" in the memo line.  These donations are tax deductible and a letter of receipt with the school tax ID number will be given upon request.  They can be mailed to:
