On October 31st, our three High School Theatre groups teamed up for a great cause. Hilliard Bradley, Darby and Davidson theatre students participated in the International Thespian Society’s Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat program. This program is a national community service project for student members to collect canned and dry goods for local charities. The Thespian students from the three schools collected 1685 pounds of canned and dry goods for the Hilliard Food Pantry. Ready for Tomorrow means working together to give back to the community today.
