Friends in Need at Hamilton Park (FINAH) is a fund set up by the HPPM PTA that helps provide free or discounted school supplies and other school-related items to HPPM families who could not otherwise afford them. These families in need are identified by our school counselor, Mrs. Inskeep. FINAHrecipients are not publicly identified, and Mrs. Inskeep communicates and coordinates with them individually. The Student Aid Chair on the PTA Board serves as the liaison between the PTA and Mrs. Inskeep to assist with fulfilling the orders.
FINAH is funded almost exclusively by individual donations from HPPM families, with some community/organizational support as well. In the 2017-2018 school year, FINAH provided free or discounted supplies to more than 75 students!
If you would like to donate to the FINAH fund, please visit the donations page. Every dollar collected helps a fellow Bobcat. Your donations keep this fund and so many other important programs at HPPM going!!
