Devil's Den- EVHS Food and Clothing Pantry


East Valley High School is reaching out to the community for support. We are an academic establishment, but we also try to meet the social, emotional and physical needs of our students. We recently gave our students a survey asking if they would like to have access to our food and clothing pantry and 200 out of 530 responded “yes” and 195 responded “maybe”. Those numbers are comparable to our students identified as low income according to OSPI. With that large of a need, we have been revising our current process and are looking to the community to help us support our students. 


Your support is key to helping open the doors to the Devil’s Den. Would you be willing to support our efforts by making a donation?  There are a couple different ways to donate. One would be to give a financial donation. Another would be to provide items such as food and toiletries.



If you would like to donate items, financially, or your time, please complete this Google Form- https://forms.gle/48qL4yu4KY8rVLsJ7

Referral Process 

If you or another EVHS student is in need of necessities such as food, clothing, undergarments or toiletries, please complete this Google referral form. This form can be completed by you, the student, or if a student has expressed their need, AND/OR you suspect that a student is in need of the aforementioned items.
Once submitted, an EVHS staff member will follow up with the student. 


Volunteer Process

If you would like to volunteer to help organize and stock the pantry, a volunteer form must be completed and turned into the office. Attached is the form, which can be printed and returned to the EVHS main office.




If you have any questions or would like more information, contact Becky Shelton at 573-7468 or [email protected]


Every donation makes a difference in our community and in the world.

Parents are encouraged to schedule appointments with the counselors to discuss academic status, post-graduation plans, career planning, etc. In addition, counselors will be providing similar information to students within the classrooms, in small groups or individually on a regular basis to prepare students for the world of work.


Referrals to various community services can be made by guidance counselors. Many times, parents and students find themselves in circumstances that they are not able to manage without help. Counselors can link people to community resources equipped to handle such issues. Call for more information.


When the occasion presents itself, support services are taken into the classroom with guidance counselors presenting pertinent information regarding such topics as: career and educational opportunities, college planning, etc.


Parents suspecting that Special Education Services may be warranted are encouraged to contact the counseling office to initiate the process.


We provide alcohol and other drug prevention and intervention services to students and their families. We also provide students with alcohol/drug use assessments and treatment if they need it, and we help those students understand what is happening.  Additionally, we provide counseling, support, and education to students who are not using alcohol or other drugs by (a) teaching skills and attitudes that will help them stay away from tobacco, and other drugs, (b)  providing support if they are being bullied or have conflicts with teachers or friends, (c) providing counseling support if they have alcohol or other drug use in their home, (d) providing support services to parents and to students if they have conflicts in the home and, (e) attempting to remove barriers that will make them unsuccessful in school. 


Information regarding Running Start, Skill Center, etc. is available in the counseling center upon request. Please feel free to contact our office between 7:30 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. with concerns or question. Messages may also be left on our voice mail at any time.R
