College Shower 2022

Dear Mustang community,

You are invited to assist our fabulous North High School students on their journey to college! As you know, we have approximately 2,200 students in attendance at North High School; many will be first generation high school graduates and even more will be first generation to go on to college. We know that this year has added additional challenges due to employment, health and other concerns, which is why we need to help more than ever.

Each year we have students who are accepted into college but end up not attending simply because they do not have the basic supplies needed to move into a dorm: items that you and I take for granted. In an effort to support and encourage these students, we are putting together a special event-- our annual college shower. Students will complete an application. Each chosen student will receive a special college care package.

We are requesting in kind items, gift certificates in any denomination or monetary donations. You or your group can sponsor a student. Feel free to pass this list on to family and friends, clubs, churches or groups you’re involved in. Nothing is too small—a toothbrush, or pack of pencils, it all adds up!

Feel free to look at the Amazon shopping list to pick out an item or two to donate, nothing is too small.

  • Extra Long sheets for the dorms (new)
