MPHS Tiger Dolls donate to Communities in Schools
The Mount Pleasant High School Tiger Dolls donated over 400 toiletry items to the MPHS Communities in Schools (CIS) for a Christmas donation drive. For the second year, the Dolls leaped at the chance to volunteer for this CIS drive.
“These Dolls and their Director have the biggest hearts and are eager to help,” said Jennifer Lide, CIS Board member. “I’m always blown away by their giving.” Lide, along with MPHS CIS Coordinator Trini Hernandez, and CIS Intern, Jazmin Garcia, received the items from the Tiger Dolls on December 1.
“The timing is perfect,” said Hernandez. “These items are always needed, and we greatly appreciate the donations.”
