  • Donation Drives:

    • Hey Trojans! With summertime approaching, the Anderson PALS are collecting gently-used summer clothing for disadvantaged families in Austin! Look through your closets for any gently-used shirts, shorts, or tank tops and bring them to the bins located inside of the library. The drive ends May 11th! Reach out to Lauren Vicknair with any questions: [email protected]

    • NHS is holding a Phone Drive!! Donate your old phones to be repurposed for those in need. Hundreds of thousands across America have no way to contact the emergency services we take for granted. This phone drive alleviates that basic necessity.  Old phones that do not work can also be donated and will be recycled. The donation box is in the front office and will run thru the end of April.  For NHS Juniors who need Spring Hours, one phone equals one hour, up to three hours. Bring in your old phones for charity.

    • Bags for the Homeless
      Hey Campers! Anderson PALS is collecting goods to make bags for those experiencing homelessness in the Austin area. Please bring extra toiletries, socks, water or snacks and drop them off at one of the bins on campus.  Bins are located in the Front Office, Library and Athletic hallway thru April 27th

    Please complete the Google Form linked below to see the times & days those students will be administered their exams.  If you have a neighbor or a friend that is looking to give back to the Anderson community, this is a great opportunity.
