Dear Parents and BHS Community Members,

The annual Holiday Meal will take place on Saturday, December 14. This 
special event features over 300 BHS students serving a warming meal, 
offering clothing, books, shoes, toys, blankets and providing 
entertainment for some 400-500 homeless or low-income people and 
families in the Berkeley community. Our goal this year is to collect 
15,000 pounds worth of canned food. Canned goods are now being collected 
in each classroom or at bins placed around campus.


THANK YOU so much to the very generous donors who have already 
contributed funds and promises to volunteer at this event. It appears 
that our need this year could be over previous records because of more 
frequent event promotion as well as suspension of other city wide events 
similar to the Holiday Meal. We would like to prepare for this possible 
influx of attendees by having as much food on hand as possible. And 
don't worry, all remaining canned goods go to the Alameda County Food 
Bank with prepared food going to a local shelter. We are seeking fresh 
food or monetary donations to help us put on this special event. What we 
are most in need of is pre-cooked hams or turkeys, potato or yam-based 
dishes, green salads or vegetable dishes, and canned/packaged foods such 
as tuna, soups or pastas.

Monetary donations are also a huge help will help us 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 13 or 8am-12pm of Saturday, December 14 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. Villavicencio) 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:
