The Hive

Welcome to the Hive

The Hive is a school community donation center that's main goal is to help students get the necessary supplies to be comfortable and successful at Preble High school. The Hive strives to maintain the three goals of providing School Supplies, Personal Hygiene products, and Clothing to those that need them. Students, Staff, Parents, and Community members are invited to donate any new or like-new products that will be used to make the Hive a respected resource for our school community.

The Three Main Goals of The Hive

Goal #1 School Supplies:

We like to stock the Hive with school supplies of all shapes and sizes – ANY school supply that might help a student become successful at Preble High School. Examples include pencils and paper but we accept goggles for science class, student planners, calculators, protractors, glue, markers, backpacks, locker organizers, trapper keepers, flash drives and any other items that might be needed to complete school homework and projects.

Goal #2 Personal Hygiene Products or Toiletries:

It is amazing how most of us take personal hygiene products for granted. Some families in our district struggle with low income or poverty; they could benefit from personal hygiene products. The Hive collects any type of personal hygiene products. Examples include: toothpaste, shampoo, tooth brushes, tampons, soap, deodorant and combs (we even get some make-up donated), and any other toiletry items. We request that these donations be NEW. Students don’t always like to admit they need these items but our Hive Team does a good job encouraging them to take some.

Goal #3 – Clothing

Some items we request NEW products and not USED. Those items are underwear and socks. People ask “What can I buy that you really need?” I think the best answer is Underwear and socks for guys and girls. These new donations are great for our underprivileged students.​
