Students and teachers at the school have come together to give back to an often forgotten group during the winter holidays: teenagers in foster care. This year, the charity event is mainly being led by Social Studies Department Chair Mark Schuler.

The charity is as simple as small green paper trees in the back of Schuler’s classroom, which list places that would interest teenagers in foster care. The charity allows people to purchase gift cards for these teenagers, as they often receive leftover gifts intended for younger children in foster care.

The trees are called Winter Solstice Trees and anyone wishing to participate in the charity can pick them up from room 2801. The price on all of the trees is set at $25, and the gift cards and trees can be turned back into Schuler.

In 2016, the school was able to contribute $1,500 in gift cards to the charity and Schuler hopes to surpass that mark this year.
