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. Social Studies Department Chair Mark Schuler is mainly leading the charity event.

The charity is simple as small green paper trees in the back of Schuler’s classroom list the 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. Both the trees and gift cards have a set price point at $25. Schuler must have all trees, and gift cards turned back to him.

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