Ten years ago, the school created a service project that we call HATS FOR THE HOMELESS.
Each December, students can make a difference, in the community, by using their sewing
Polar fleece hats and scarf sets are sewn and then given to Mission Solano for distribution
during the holiday season. Last year, 75 sets were completed (see pictures below). We
would like to acknowledge that for the past five years, Mike Aldredge, has generously
donated all the fabric needed to make the sets. Also, thanks to all the students who
tirelessly give up Christmas vacation time to make these hats!
For 2007, any donations of polar fleece (1 yard or more) are welcome!
