Dear CHS Family, 
The Interact Club, in conjunction with This Club Saves Lives, is accepting donations for our annual homeless care bag project. Please see Quincy’s letter below with further details. Any donation is appreciated!

Dear Carmel-by-the-Sea Rotary Members:

The Carmel High Interact Club is assembling 50 care packages for the local Monterey homeless, some of which are former Carmel students. Our members will be personally handing each one out during a Saturdaychurch event. We organized this project last year and it was a huge success, both for our community and for the students who were able to be a part of this amazing opportunity.
The Interact Club has been fortunate to receive donations from the Carmel-by-the-Sea Rotary Club every year, but undertakings of this magnitude deplete our resources quickly, which is why we are humbly asking each member for their help. We have made a wish-list of an array of essentials and basic foods. All we hope is that each of you will consider buying a small item or sharing our message; these contributions add up rapidly! Furthermore, anything leftover will be given to This Club Saves Lives for their 100 Lunches project during WE Day–an unparalleled celebration of young people committed to making a difference–in Los Angeles.
We are all so thankful for how much we’ve been given already, and we hope that you’ll help us continue to make a positive impact on our community by taking a look here: If there is something else you feel would be significant to include in the care packages, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at or
Best Regards,
Quincy Hendricks
Interact Club President

We are selling a shirt as a fundraiser for our WE Day trip. The shirt has a line from the poem being performed in front of 16,000 people in Los Angeles. You can pre-order a shirt in ladies and unisex sizes in the Carmel High School webstore. (yes you have you create an account, let me know if you have any problems).

We had a great time delivering crayons to first-graders at Fremont Elementary School. They were so excited to have high school students visit so we are going back in a few weeks to read with them!


Thank you for the crayon donations! Yes, we are still collecting more. Please drop off in the office or contact Coral. Thank you to @crayoncollection for the support! IMG_8647.jpeg

This Club Saves Lives at Carmel High School is working with an organization called Crayon Collection in the efforts to collect new, used, or even broken crayons to donate to underfunded schools in our county.  One of our club activities will be melting the broken crayons and turning them into new ones to donate to the schools. This project is not only saving the environment by recycling crayons, it is also a simple and impactful way to provide children with a chance to express their creative sides.

Our club–along with many children in the community–would be extremely grateful for your donation. So, if you have any crayons at home or in your classroom that you are willing to part with, please email me back (or Leigh Cambra) and our club will come pick them up. Thank you so much for your commitment to spreading the love for education around our community.
