  • Cougar Leader Program Fundraiser

    The Cougar Leader program is asking for your help to sponsor one or more students at BHSN. Normally, this transition program collects money from a small registration fee for Cougar Encounter which helps cover the cost of t-shirts and other supplies used throughout the school year in our role as ambassadors for the school. The recent pandemic, however, has canceled the past two Encounters which has depleted the Cougar Leader budget. A 25-dollar donation will sponsor one student, but anyone is welcome to help sponsor more! Would you consider helping us raise funds for our transition activities and Cougar spirit wear this school year? Thank you!

  • Project Middle Way Thrift Shop

     Project Middle Way organizes our first annual BHSN Thrift Shop. 

    Ask from you: If you have North spirit wear or collegiate apparel sitting in your closets or drawers that you don't wear anymore, please consider donating them to our sale. All donations can be brought to room 603. 
    For background on how we came to this idea and the work we do...
    In their efforts to support Middle Way House, BHSN students throw an annual fashion show that promotes inclusive fashion. We do a lot of work talking about how self-love can be difficult but also healing and empowering for survivors. 
    This year, students have also been working to think about how fashion is an intersectional issue. The fashion industry has power in impacting discussions about body image, gender, race, and the environment. This week, students hosted a tutorial about fast-fashion and the industry's impact on our environment, which served as a launch for the BHSN Thrift Shop. We want the thrift shop to be a space for students to practice more sustainable purchasing and offer an opportunity for students to access North spirit wear for a low cost. 
    The details...
    What is it? A thrift sale that will take place during lunches from 12/6-12/10
    When are you accepting donations?  From now until 12/3. We will not have time to launder late donations, so they will not be accepted for the sale, but we may be able to still help you donate your clothes to a good cause. 
    How much will items cost? $1-$10, with most items priced below $5
    What kinds of items will you sell? Clothing, especially North spirit wear. All items will be laundered before the sale.  We are also open to costume jewelry, as well as caps that can be laundered. No shoes, swimsuits, socks, or undergarments please! 
    What will you do with un-purchased clothes? We may save some items for next year's sale, and other items will be donated to the North closet and families at Middle Way's shelter. 
    All financial proceeds will be donated to Middle Way House!!! So far, we have donated $5,200 to Middle Way House this year. Help us keep up that amazing momentum!
