Herman supports Welcome Center Shelter for Women

As most of you know we were able to put together 20 bins full of food and toiletries for families in our school over the holidays.  Our parents and students were so appreciative of the generosity of the Herman staff!  Thank you again for all of your thoughtfulness.


There is a new initiative between the Board, Herman Secondary and the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women.  Items are being collected for the next four months. These items will help women and children fleeing abusive relationships while they are staying at the shelter.  For the month of January Herman is responsible for collecting baby products and hygiene items.  Please see the attached list.  We have some extra money and toiletry items from our Christmas donations that we will give to this worthwhile cause.  If anyone is interested in contributing any of these items, we will be collecting them in 116. and Mr. Canty will be delivering them to the shelter at the end of the month.
