The Community Council sponsored the first Harvard-Westlake Sports Drive, collecting used sports equipment to donate to the Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club.

Community Council planned to incorporate community service into the Homecoming Dance, but ran into logistical issues, and decided to hold a drive on Homecoming day and the week of Oct. 7.

The goal of the drive was not only to collect donations, but also to inform parents of community service opportunities that are available on campus.

Due to the success of the drive, Community Council is considering the idea of making the drive an annual occurrence.

“It was incredibly successful — we got so many donations and we were able to involve parents in a community service endeavor,” Community Council head Tatiana Ettensberger ’14, said. “I certainly think we will keep it as a tradition since we did achieve such success with the drive.”
