The holiday season has arrived and Virtual High School staff are focused on how we can support the local community. It is a time of giving, and with that in mind we are aiming to provide families and youth in the area with some joy and happiness through donations. This year we will again be donating to two organizations; the Huron County Christmas Bureau (HCCB) and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of North Huron (BBBS of North Huron).
The HCCB is a volunteer group that began in 1967 by organizing gift centres to 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 Christmas season. The bureaus are open until December 7 to accept donations. Visit h-pcas.ca/events-campaigns to learn more.
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 this organization helps to provide these youth with gifts and necessities during the holiday season. Visit northhuron.bigbrothersbigsisters.ca to learn more.
