HHS Theater Production with Heart
Care & Share is a not-for-profit organization made up of teachers/administrators. This committee is independent from the school district. Care & Share does a variety of fundraising to assist Hauppauge High School students in need. HHS Social Worker, Ms. Shannon Griffin, is the committee president. Care & Share raises approximately $3,000-4,000 annually to assist families with financial help for field trip assistance, AP/IB testing fees, Junior/Senior prom, Graduation cap/gown, yearbooks and review books for Regents Exams.
A family will make a request to their child’s guidance counselor for assistance with one of the above-mentioned items. The committee meets together to review the application and will make a recommendation to pay the fee in full or part for the family. This is a confidential process to protect the privacy and dignity of the family and applying student.
Care & Share is constantly looking for ways to raise more money so they can assist more students. Each year the need increases in the Hauppauge community and funding is sometimes a stressful challenge.
On Friday and Saturday, October 20th and 21st, the Drama Club presented their first production of the 2017-18 school year. Care & Share was in the lobby selling concessions to aid the program. The Drama Club did not charge admission to allow are Care & Share to benefit from all proceeds.
