Alhambra’s Mitten Project

Oct 30, 2016 10:13PM ● By Elena Hutslar

There are several programs sponsored by student leadership where families, individuals, clubs, sports teams, and student groups can "adopt a family."


The "Mitten Project" provides gifts for a family or child during the holiday season. You can drop off new hats, scarves and gloves, fleece blankets, men's socks, personal hygiene kits or even just a box of cereal to the main office. If you would prefer to donate a gift card so leadership students can shop for the gifts, that works as well.


You can also sign up to “adopt a family” by going to the Alhambra High School website at and clicking on “2016 Mitten Project,” on the right hand side of the home page. Leadership asks all items, preferably gift-wrapped, to be dropped off at the school by Tuesday, December 6. If you have questions, Leadership teacher Mrs. Griffin can be reached at [email protected]. Last year, the leadership class was able to help 40+ local families with gifts and food.
