BHS Music students are donating 36 shoeboxes filled with joy for less fortunate children all over the world. The shoebox initiative is run by Samaritan's Purse, an organization that delivers tens of thousands of boxes to many different countries in time for Christmas. These gracious students volunteered to fill one or more boxes this year. This BHS Music Dept. humanitarian effort started last year and participation more than doubled this year! We hope it continues to grow to include even more students and staff as years go by.
