Scavenger hunt kick-offs drive

Hands4Hope — Youth Making A Difference will be partnering with local schools for a Toiletries Drive Challenge.

Participating elementary schools will compete for a traveling trophy that will be awarded to the school that fills the most collection barrels with items per student ratio. The drive will run from March 31 to April 11 and will be started with a community-wide scavenger hunt.

On Sunday, March 30, 5 to 18-year-olds from Hands4Hope will head out in teams from parks throughout El Dorado Hills to announce the drive and collect items for the scavenger hunt.

Please be prepared for a knock on your door and the smiling faces of kids out to make a difference in the lives of others. They will be in search of toilet paper, new toothbrushes, disposable razors and the like.

Toiletries, like food, quickly get used up and are always in demand by both the homeless and those struggling to make ends meet.

Help make a difference for those in our community by sending toilet paper, feminine products, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, disposable razors, diapers, deodorant, and/or baby wipes to school with your children during those two weeks.

Schools participating in the drive are: Oak Meadow Elementary, William Brooks Elementary, Silva Valley Elementary, Jackson Elementary and Lakeview Elementary. Camerado Middle School will be doing a drive during the same time period but will not be competing for the trophy.

If you do not have a child enrolled at a participating school and you would like to contribute, drop donations off at the Hands4Hope Youth Center, 877 Embarcadero Drive, Suite 3, El Dorado Hills. There will be a collection barrel outside the side door when the center is not open.

For more information about Hands4Hope or to make a business donation call 916-484-5873, e-mail info@hands4hopeyouth.org or go to hands4hopeyouth.org.
