Highland Park ISD is partnering once again with the North Texas Food Bank and the Park Cities Rotary Club to hold a turkey drive. The turkeys will be collected by the North Texas Food Bank in a refrigerated truck to distribute to families in need at Thanksgiving.

Students and parents may bring frozen turkeys or cash/credit card donations at the following times, dates and locations: 

7-9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19

  • HPHS
  • MIS/HPMS
  • Bradfield
  • Hyer
  • UP

7-9 a.m. Friday, Nov. 22

  • Armstrong    

The North Texas Food Bank will have staff members at each campus to collect cash and credit card donations. Donations may also be made online, but donations by text message will not be accepted this year.   

The North Texas Food Bank will also be present at the University Park Tree Lighting Ceremony at Snider Plaza from 1-6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24. Its focus will be on collecting funds for its "$1 creates 3 meals" campaign, in which families can instantly spread cheer by providing three meals with just a $1 donation, all while enjoying the tree lighting. There will also be a truck present to collect canned goods.
