Dear Mayo High School Families-

MHS has built a strong S.O.S. room with the purpose of serving students and families in need with basic living supplies.  We offer clothing, coats, toiletries, food and more!

Our student volunteers continue to provide strong support for this program including:

  • Over 30 student grant writing volunteers
  • Four student volunteers help to organize and maintain the room

In October and November, over 450 items were taken by students in need.  The items most needed were coats, t-shirts, sweatshirts and blouses.

This year we have launched a new program focused on ensuring students have food at home over the weekend and breaks.  Backpacks full of food, toiletries and other items are taken home by over 20 students each week.  Once students identify their needs, backpacks are packed specifically to match by student volunteers who volunteer during their open hours.  It is incredible to see the support of the Spartan volunteers and humbling to see how many of our students care about making this happen.

We appreciate your past support and ask you to continue to keep the SOS room in mind when you are considering your donations. 

The S.O.S. room is particularly in need of the following:

  • Winter coats of all sizes
  • Mittens and gloves
  • Hairbrushes
  • Deodorant
  • Toilet paper
  • Shampoo and Conditioner

    If you are willing to contribute with a financial donation, these donations would be used for the following:

    • Hangers
    • Racks
    • Shelving units
    • Other necessities to keep the room functioning

Please consider contributing to the S.O.S room to support students and families in need.
