    Hamilton's social worker team works hard to support families in need by providing daily food, hygiene, school supplies, clothing, gift cards, cleaning supplies and other basic necessities. They also assist other CUSD schools with supplies and gift cards by collaborating with staff and programs across the district. In November, they gave 80 Thanksgiving meals to Hamilton families at Sun Lakes Methodist Church and $2,280 in Fry's gift cards.

Additionally, for the past six years, the Safeway store on Alma School and Chandler Heights has provided 40 Thanksgiving meals to underprivileged families at Hamilton.
