Friends of MWHS Host Holiday Drive

November 29, 2021 — To make the holidays a little brighter for Mound Westonka High School families in need, Friends of MWHS is hosting the 5th Annual Holiday Drive through December 13, and they hope you will consider helping this year.

MWHS staff have identified students and families who could use help this holiday season. The list includes students who are on their own, some who are the primary caregiver in their family, and a student asking for gift cards for gas, transportation, food and personal items to allow them to work less, and focus on their studies. Check out the sign-up list to see how you can help.

"These are uncertain times for many, but we hope our amazing Westonka community will help us make the season brighter for these special people in our MWHS family," said Jennifer Velarde, president of Friends of MWHS.

Donations may be dropped off at the MWHS office, or mailed directly to MWHS until Monday, December 13. 

MWHS is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to serve their MWHS family. Monetary donations are always appreciated via
