Over the recent holiday season, Palmer Trinity School (PTS) students and faculty generously gave to those in need in our community by donating food and contributing to a holiday gift drive.

More than 1,100 food items were donated to the Branches Thanksgiving Food Drive and to an MS Food Drive for Lotus House Shelter spearheaded by the 8th-grade class focused helping those experiencing food insecurity in Miami.

Students also wrapped 300 fuzzy socks for the men and women at Chapman Partnership and Lotus House Homeless Shelters.
