This year Slinger High School is initiating a number of ways for students to give back before Christmas. A couple weeks ago students and staff had the opportunity to participate in the Giving Tree by picking a tag to buy a present for a less fortunate child. 125 presents are given to the kids at LaVarnway Boys and Girls Club. SHS has partnered with The Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee for a number of years now; usually all the tags are taken within a couple days. On December 10th Slinger’s gifts were delivered to the Boys and Girls Club, and will be providing joy to these kids this holiday season.

Slinger’s foreign language students and staff are also spreading Christmas cheer this year by providing warm jackets to local Hispanic families in need. Partnering with West Bend’s Casa Guadalupe for this Coat Drive, Spanish Club, German Club and The International Club were taking coats in good condition to donate to give to families less fortunate.
