Alhambra Crayon Drive

The leadership class at Alhambra High School would like all your old crayons to melt down and make new crayons. They are going to put together packets of crayons with a coloring book and donate them to local hospital pediatric centers in the area. 

The idea was conceived by leadership student Mikela Patrick, who said, “I wanted to find a way to give back to the community during the fall. Last year, I served as a class officer and helped with the homecoming float. Over the last year, my little cousin Zoey, who lives in a different state, was diagnosed with leukemia. I wanted to give something back locally to kids that are suffering like her, and I came up with this idea.” 

The drive is going on now through October 31.  You can drop off your broken crayons in the designated bin in the main office of the high school,150 E St, Martinez or call (925) 335-5810 for more information.
