FIERCE “Thanksgiving Baskets of Blessings”
On, November 20th, the F.I.E.R.C.E Spring Valley Female mentoring group gave back by preparing baskets filled with everything needed for a complete Thanksgiving meal. F.I.E.R.C.E provided turkeys and baskets of food to needy Spring Valley families in our community. We want to give a big thank you to everyone who donated. Also a big thank you to the Spring Valley Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) Club who donated non-perishable items. With all the funds we were able to raise we will be preparing baskets for families this christmas. We want to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Help the National Honor Society and Winter Days with This Garbage Can of a T-shirt
You may remember that back in March, remote learning didn’t exist and the National Honor Society was a week away from our Trashion Show that we put on every year to raise money for local food banks. Literally, the day that school was cancelled, our order of 130 t-shirts arrived at Spring Valley. Fortunately, they say “Trashion Show 2020” so we can still sell them for another six weeks in celebration of our remote/virtual Trashion Show.
Originally, NHS was going to donate the profits from the sale of the t-shirts to the Souper Bowl of Caring. Now, we will donate all proceeds from the sale, including our cost, to Winter Days. We know that there are many people in need and the usual Winter Days can drive will be more challenging than ever. Please consider buying a t-shirt and helping Winter Days reach their goals this year.
We will also be selling Trashion Show mugs for $10 to support Winter Days. The mugs are made by students in our employability class, a class that prepares students with exceptional needs for life after high school. The name of their company is Dragon Designs and they can help you with your design needs. By purchasing from them, you are helping our students meet their 350 hour requirement to earn their employability certificate.
If you think our logo is too “trashy,” you may also donate directly to our cause by simply donating in $10 increments. If we sell out of the t-shirts in your size we will refund your money or give you the option of being part of a reorder if there is enough interest. Thank you in advance for your support. You may order through Parent Portal. If you don’t have a Parent Portal account, ask a member of NHS and they can order for you.
