The 2022-23 MHS Boys Soccer Teams are going to be collecting items to create gift baskets to donate to Orange County foster kids & Youth at a Dec 4 Christmas party. Each basket will be about $30 value and have a movie or game night theme.
We are asking that each player collect the needed items donated from friends, classmates, teachers, and families to bring in by November 28. On Friday, Dec 2 we will assemble the baskets at picture day while the boys are waiting for photos.
