Gifts in Kind
At High Mowing there is always an ongoing "wish list" — those little things that make life just a little brighter and a little easier for our students and teachers, but don't necessarily have to be bright and shiny new. Consider helping out with a gift-in-kind. Old clothes can be transformed into costumes by our theatre department. Sports equipment that your kids have outgrown can become weekend entertainment for our students. A CD player set aside for the modern MP3 player and iPods can become an important tool for the library. Check out the list below. If you see something that you would like to donate, contact Kathy Boss at (603) 654-9408 x105.
