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 300-500 homeless or low-income people and families in the Berkeley
community. Our goal this year is to collect 15,000 pounds worth of canned


Please consider contributing to this meal by making a donation of funds,
canned goods, warm coats, toiletries, or socks. Yes, socks! Warm socks were
a huge request from attendees last year. Any and all donations are being
collected in the bins located outside of the Leadership Office at BHS.


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 and 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 4:30 pm - 7 pm on Friday,
December 13 or 8 am - Noon on 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:
