  • Volunteer Corner
    BHS Student Volunteers Help Fill Up Holiday Food Baskets!
    Bremerton High School students were involved for weeks holding food drives to benefit Foodline. On November 23rd students formed a human chain from the school to the food bank to deliver the items they gathered, passing more than 4,000 pounds of packaged food from hand to hand under a steady rain.  Great Job!  Thank you for supporting the needy in our community!!
