Are You a Parent of a Vancouver Public Schools student?

The Student Chest Drive is an annual event conducted in all schools between November 5-16. This fundraising activity is endorsed by Vancouver Public Schools Board of Directors and gives students an opportunity to help others less fortunate in our community.

Monetary and in-kind donations (new clothing, non-perishable food, gas cards, hygiene items, grocery cards) are accepted year-round through the Foundation for VPS.

Thank you to all parents who supported their child during last year’s Student Chest Drive. Look for information soon on how to help with the 2018 Student Chest Drive. By making a donation, your family can play a part in helping students get the basic items they need to be successful.
