Annual Scavenger Hunt to Benefit Holliston Pantry Shelf on Saturday April 7th

Holliston High School students will once again knock on doors in Holliston on Saturday, April 7th from 1 – 3 pm to collect food and personal hygiene items for the Holliston Pantry Shelf.  The annual event is led by the National Honor Society and Junior class members.

Students form teams of five and travel house-to-house throughout Holliston to request donations. The group that collects the most donations receives 50% off the cost of their prom ticket.   Residents who wish to donate may also leave items on their doorsteps for pick-up.   Residents are asked to please check dates on donated items to be sure items have not expired.

“The Annual Junior Scavenger Hunt is a wonderful opportunity for students to give back to the community,” said Michaela Campbell, Holliston High School Senior and Holliston Pantry Shelf Student Board Member. “In a town driven by countless hard-working volunteers, it's great to see high school students step up, plan the event, and encourage the community to make a donation. This is a fun and easy way to support the Holliston Pantry Shelf as we turn the corner into spring!”

Holliston Pantry Shelf is a non-profit 501c (3) that serves more than 200 families in the town of Holliston.
