Hospitality Help Still Needed
Published: Fri, Sep 23, 2016, 04:07PM CDT

Hospitality Request:

The Hospitality Committee is busy planning monthly events to show the teachers and staff at CHS just how much we appreciate them! This is a big undertaking and is not possible without the generosity of CHS parents who donate food items for the events. We could use your help as we serve approximately 250 people each month and are in need of more parent volunteers to help provide food. This is a GREAT way to help out. If you choose to participate, you will be contacted monthly by email with a list of items needed that month. Some items can be purchased at Costco/Sam’s/grocery store, and some items we request to be homemade. Delivery is EASY! Either send it with your student the morning of the event, or you can drop it off at the ‘Horseshoe’ on the day of the event. If you are interested in helping out, or would like additional information, please e-mail Kaylea Schultz (Kjcs3@aol.com). Thanks for considering!
