Since September, this group has spread positive attitudes with a “locker sticky note” campaign; stuffed 500 bags for the 5K breast cancer run; raised over $1,500 for Habitat for Humanity by sleeping in boxes outside overnight; collected 446 items for our food pantry; made $466 in Shamrock sales for the Muscular Dystrophy Association; and most recently, collected $1,528 for the American Cancer Society from the sale of a T-shirt in support of Mrs. Sharon Gibbs, with additional donations of over $800 thanks to the extremely generous theater patrons for “Curtains.” (more…)
