Explore, Engage, Experience

Adopt-A-Family is an important holiday program on the Coastside. The program provides holiday gifts to local families that do not have the economic means to do so themselves. HFCC typically adopts two families through this program. Our parents are encouraged to purchase specific items requested by participating families. It is our hope that participation in the program will help our child learn the importance of giving.

St. Jude’s Trike-A-Thon

St Jude’s Trike-A-Thon takes place yearly to celebrate The Week of the Young Child. Each child collects sponsorships from family, friends and neighbors prior to the event. On the days of the event, the children bring their bicycles and helmets to the school and see how many laps they can complete in a timed duration. In the past four years, not only have the children looked forward to this event, but HFCC has raised over $9,000.00 for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Community Donation Program

On a monthly basis, parents are invited to donate gently-used clothing, toys, and small household items that are collected by a volunteer and distributed to families in need around the community. Community Backpack Drive This program is an annual cooperative effort with local organizations and churches. The goal is to provide 400+ backpacks, filled with school supplies, to K-12th graders in need on the coast. Donations of school supplies, backpacks, and money are collected prior to the new school year. HFCC participates by collecting donations and having the children participate by helping stuff some of the backpacks.
