On Dec. 4, middle school students presented gifts to representatives from Kidango, a nonprofit, child development organization based in the Bay Area. The organization brought five large vehicles, which were filled to capacity with the donations. According to faculty co-coordinator Peggy Crisler, this number is up from two carloads last year. In November, a representative from Kidango spoke at an assembly about what it means to give and the benefits of taking part in charity giving. Harker students were given cards that underprivileged kids had filled out with requests for items for Christmas.
