Each year, students and faculty at Hoover Elementary collect food and toys, as well as other gifts, to donate to needy families.

Donations are made by students and their families, along with the Home School Association and staff, in addition to many members of the community.

Hoover has a special holiday tree, which is decorated with donated scarves and gloves. The items will be added to each of the baskets that will be given away to approximately 30 families.
