Haven House Volunteering Event

The Public Service Advisory Board is kicking off the school year with a great service opportunity with Haven House. Haven House is an organization that gives families a place to stay when their kids are in the hospital and offers them extra support in their time of need. The organization is always looking for extra toiletries to give to the families who stay at their facility. PSAB will be collecting toiletries for the first few weeks of school to donate to Haven House, so whether it's the free shampoo and conditioner from your hotel rooms or the extra toothbrush your dentist gives you, please consider donating to help these families out. There will be collection boxes near the lockers the first few weeks of school.​
