Winter Care Package Drive at West Seattle High School
Dec 8 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

During school closure in winter break (12/18 2021-1/2 2022), the Teen Health Center will be closed and students will not be able to access the Health Center’s services. The 16 day break can become a gap for those students who regularly rely on the Teen Health Center for access to hygiene products. With that issue, I proposed the idea to assemble winter care packages to provide the appropriate hygiene necessities needed throughout the break.

Here are hygiene necessities that would be included in care packages:
– packaged masks
– unopened hand sanitizer
– unopened protein bars/granola bars/snacks
– unopened bars of soap
– unopened deodorant
– unused toothbrushes
– unopened toothpaste
– unopened chapstick
– hand warmers

Donations of clothing (used): jackets, sweaters, pants, socks, gloves, hats, scarves, t-shirts, blankets

Donation collecting events:
at WEST SEATTLE HIGH SCHOOL’S HISTORIC ENTRANCE
3000 California Ave SW

– Wednesday, November 24th 2021 from 3-5 pm
– Wednesday, December 1st 2021 from 3-5 pm
– Wednesday, December 8th 2021 from 3-5 pm

The Teen Health Council will then assemble care packages and students at West Seattle High School can pick them up during the week of 12/13-12/17, the week before winter break starts.
