RISD AND LAKE HIGHLANDS COVID-19 RESPONSE
Meals and Food
Monday-Friday (beginning March 23): Richardson ISD is offering “grab and go” breakfasts and lunches for any students in the Lake Highlands and Hamilton Park communities at a variety of locations. NOTE: These meals are available for ANY students, not just those who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. No identification or documentation required. Visit the RISD Coronavirus webpage for a complete list of locations and additional details.
Wednesdays: Feed Lake Highlands distributes food on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Wednesday of every month from 2-5 p.m. at The New Room Community Center, 10061 Whitehurst Drive, Dallas, TX 75243. Participants may receive food once a month and must come from zip code 75231, 75238 or 75243. No ID or documentation required.
Weekends: Several non-profit organizations, including Imagine Dallas, Café Momentum, Network of Community Ministries, Lake Highlands Junior Women's League and others, are working together to provide COVID-19 response efforts, including weekend meal kits offered to help food-insecure families during the weekend. These will be available beginning this Friday on a first-come, first-served basis at the same locations as regular weekday RISD "grab and go" sites. Stay tuned for more information and/or volunteer opportunities.

LHHS WILDCAT DEN DONATIONS NEEDED!
The LHHS Wildcat Den is the food pantry and clothes closet that serves our homeless students and food insecure families. Identified students are able to visit the pantry with CIS (Communities in Schools) representatives on Fridays during 6th period so they are able to get food for the weekend. It also serves to meet individual needs throughout the week.
We are asking our LH community for donations so that we can use the remaining funds left in our budget to purchase fresh food and continue to provide Fresh Fruit Fridays. Please see the sign-up here.
WALL OF FAME
The Wall of Fame is a great way to show your support and display a permanent memory of your graduate, past and future students, family, teacher, club, staff or friend.
The last day for Wall of Fame bricks and tile orders is April 30, 2020. All orders will be finalized with the vendor in May and installation should occur late summer / early fall 2020, once construction is complete. Note that installation of bricks purchased in 2018/2019 will occur at the same time. The Wall of Fame location for bricks purchased in 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 will be determined upon completion of construction.
