Each year during the month of December, Sheboygan South High School students and staff take time to reach out to children and community members to help those who are less fortunate.
A summary of some of the successful fundraisers and events that were held in December 2010 includes:

Winter Blood Drive - On Thursday, December 16, 88 South High students and staff participated in the Blood Center blood drive that was run by the South Student Council. A total of 68 donations were collected, saving a total of 204 lives.
