Hereâ€™s an opportunity for our entire Hickory Hills student body to work together to provide holiday food baskets to low-income families that SPS selected through Crosslines.
How you can help:Â Donate food, cash, or help assemble and deliver the baskets to families.

Food categories by grade are:
Kindergarten:Â Â Â Â Canned fruits and vegetables
1st Grade: Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Breakfast items (oatmeal, cereals, pancake mix, syrup)

TOYS: Â Hickory Hills kids are encouraged to chip in $1 so we can add Toys R Us gift cards to the baskets â€“ a little something extra for the children. Â Baggie attached for your convenience.Â Checks can be made payable to â€œHHPTA.â€
