The Annual Appeal

The Annual Appeal is the most efficient way to raise funds for HSAS. The suggested donation is $750 per child, but every dollar makes a difference and every dollar is greatly appreciated. Donate with cash, check or credit card. Please remember that many employers match contributions. The HSAS PTA is a registered  501(c)(3) organization. Please give what you can.

Make your donation by November 5 to be skipped during our annual Phone-a-thon!

There are two ways to donate.  By donating online, or by sending in an Annual Appeal Form:
