Starting Van Horn High School Seniors on Their Journey

We're helping out Van Horn seniors by acting as a local drop off point for various items that will help seniors once they graduate. Whether their goal is to enter college or go directly into the work force, they'll need things to get them going, from bedsheets to laundry detergent.

Every item collected will become a part of a gift basket put together by the Van Horn teachers to give out on Decision Day. If you would like to donate, here is the list of suggested items below. Items do not have to come from our store (you'll find plenty on here that we don't sell as it is!); we are simply their point of contact!

Thank you for helping out local young adults on their path into the world!
