What’s Happening at Hall: November

by | Nov 11, 2021 | News | 0 comments

The holiday season is a busy time for all of us—but it’s also a time for us to give back, practice generosity, and care for our community.

In the coming months, we are hosting our annual toy drive for children and students, celebrating the international day of giving on Giving Tuesday, and helping our neighbors have a very happy Hall-i-days!

When you make a gift to Hall Neighborhood House this winter, you’re giving more than just a present a child can unwrap. You’re helping us spread joy, encouragement, and opportunity in our neighborhood.

Thank you for your partnership. We are grateful to share this season of celebration and generosity with you!

A visit from Earthplace

This October, we had some very special visitors from Earthplace! Our students got to see and interact with animal ambassadors, then they learned about the importance of taking care of our shared home. Thank you to Earthplace for teaching us about our environment and introducing us to new reptile and mammal friends!

Project playground update

Our new playground set has arrived! Thank you to everyone who contributed to help give our kids the safe, fun playground they deserve. Our students play hard—and they are going to love exploring this brand new play set.
