The Holiday Meal is a grand service event that invites the community 
into BHS for a heartwarming meal organized by students, staff, and other 
community members. During our first round of collecting donations last 
week, we received over $500 in donations as we move towards our goal of 
$4000 to cover all expenses of the Holiday Meal. See below for the 
various ways you can contribute to the meal!
