WC Thanksgiving Community Dinner: As the holiday season approaches, many of us get excited thinking about the delicious turkey dinner we'll have on Thanksgiving. But, a large portion of the AHS student body cannot do the same as up to 1/2 of the student body is on free or reduced lunch, some even unsure where their next meal outside of school will come. The sad truth is for many families in our district a Thanksgiving meal is far out of reach. At AHS, we take care of one another because together, we make a family. Now is the time to help our extended family have a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner by donating to the WC Thanksgiving Dinner.
Just a small donation with help our WC families received a fully catered Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings and go home with a gift card to Kroger. Our goal is to raise $13,000 and we cannot do it without YOU! Please consider helping by sending a check to WC Thanksgiving Dinner c/o AHS 1351 Clough Pike Batavia, Ohio 45103. If you would like to attend the dinner with our AHS family, please contact Mrs. Walker at 943-5072. You can also follow us on Facebook at West Clermont Thanksgiving or on twitter @wcthanksgiving
