14 Years of Turkeys to Families with CHS Food Drive

The Cascade High School Holiday Food Drive is an amazing event! Students learn the value in giving and investing in their community, and in helping out those in need during the holidays. For many students, helping pull off this food drive is a favorite high school experience.

The Jensens make it even more special with their turkey donation each year, adding a turkey (18-20 lbs each) to the food donation for each family.

Brett’s Run in The Herald

Julie Mulstein’s article in The Herald, Wed, Aug 23, 2017:

Brett Jensen would have turned 35 next week. A top student, ASB president and athlete in Cascade High School’s Class of 2001, he died the year after graduation. His life of achievement ended when he fell from a fraternity house near the University of Washington campus.

Zack Demars, another standout Cascade graduate, never had the chance to meet Jensen.

“I was just 2 years old when he passed away,” said Demars, 18, who on Monday was featured as The Herald’s Super Kid. “There’s no way I could have met him, but I’m so affected by his story. Everyone at Cascade is impacted. The Everett community is impacted.”……..
