The Campbell Hall community of students, parents, grandparents, faculty and staff joined together over the course of the 2018-19 school year to make a difference in the lives of countless people and worthy organizations across Los Angeles. Support came in many forms from service to donations and helped a wide variety of causes including homelessness, animals, the environment, and the victims of wildfires. Not to be forgotten were also kindnesses that were bestowed on members of our own CH community, from appreciation luncheons for faculty and staff, to posters encouraging others to be supportive, to baskets of treats made by students for the maintenance staff -- love and caring have been at the center of it all.
Below are some highlights, reminding us that we, as a community, can do so much!
