With the shopping season upon us, it can be easy to lose sight of the true meaning of the holidays. One aspect of the holidays that Virtual High School wants to focus on is giving. We want to help make the holiday season a joyful time for all families in our community by donating to the Huron County Christmas Bureau (HCCB) and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Huron (BBBS of North Huron).
The HCCB, a volunteer group, began in 1967 by organizing gift centers that distribute clothing, food, gift certificates, and toys to hundreds of families in need of these items in Huron County. The HCCB supports any family that needs a little bit of extra help during the festive season.
Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Huron is a youth services agency for 6-18 year old individuals in North and Central Huron. Approximately 80% of the youth in this program live in poverty, and most live in single parent homes where drug and alcohol abuse are significant issues. Donations to their Miracle of Hope campaign help to provide these youth with gifts and necessities during the holiday season.
Share our post on Facebook to donate $1 to the HCCB AND $1 to BBBS of North Huron. Up to 250 shares will be matched by VHS for a total donation of up to $500. Share the post by December 15, 2017. Help us help others in Huron County again this year!
UPDATE (December 15, 2017): Virtual High School is happy to share that $250 was donated to both the Huron County Christmas Bureau and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Huron. Thank you to everyone who engaged with our Facebook post to help spread the word about these two organizations. Happy holidays to all!
