The Lake Washington High School recently held a food drive for Hopelink, collecting 12,973 pounds of food. That will provide 9,626 meals for Hopelink clients.

Students filled 19 pallets in two truckloads to help Hopelink-assisted families through the holiday season and beyond. In addition, the student Loyalty club raised $4,000 for Hopelink.

At the beginning of November, Loyalty club members organized shifts at local markets to solicit contributions from the community in their goal of beating last year’s record of 12,000 pounds of food and household items they collected.
