Letter: Students can make a difference
This is a follow up to the article about the Carson Interact Club raising money for the “Focused on a Cure” breast cancer charity group. We raised a total of $1934.25 through donations from walkers, and students purchasing pink ribbon pins.
Several Carson clubs stepped up and supported our efforts. The Key Club and SGA raised substantial funds. The Leadership Club had a successful raffle of multiple baskets with items donated from local businesses. The HOSA club sold beverages. The YCI sold suckers, handmade jewelry and painted rocks.
The Interact Club greatly appreciates the support of those clubs, and the people that walked in the walkathon. The funds raised will alleviate some financial stress and make a difference for those dealing with breast cancer.
Guiding high school students is more than just academics. Through all of our clubs, we expose them to situations where they can make a difference in their community and the world. Hopefully these experiences will have impact them, and they will continue to do service for others for the rest of their lives.
