HERMISTON — Hermiston High School leadership, along with the Key Club and the Center for Civic Engagement, are collecting items for care packages to be sent to servicemen and women deployed from our area.

Associated Student Body officers will welcome the following items — community members can drop them off at the front desk — until Nov. 30:

Baby wipes that come out of packages, not cans or bottles.

Hand sanitizer or tube hand lotion

Gum or hard candy

Jerky or pepperoni

Magazines or books on the outdoors, sports or hunting

DVDs of recent action movies

Coffee or tea

Mixed nuts or trail mix.

To learn more about the Helping Hands project, call HHS leadership at 541-667-6100, extension 20546, or email Tim Zacharias at tim.zacharias@hermiston.k12.or.us.
