Gunn kids are doing wonderful things to help others. During National Women's History Month (March 1-31), the Gunn community is being asked to DONATE used cell phones. These phones will be sent to eastern and central Africa for use by expectant mothers and their health care providers. Hope Phones and Every Mother Counts are trying to collect 10,000 used cell phones. Gunn's goal is 100 used cell phones by March 30.

Collection boxes are in the Main Office, Student Activity Center, and Bldg. L-31.
