Spotlight on Walled Lake Central High’s Red Cross Club
This month, for March is Red Cross Month, WLC Red Cross Club members conducted the Totes for Hope activity. They created the kits to be distributed at the local Veteran’s center, after collecting donations and raising funds through a Candy Grams fundraiser that they held on Valentine’s Day. Students at Walled Lake Central then had the chance to sponsor a bag for $8 and the Club members assembled the kits together.
The Veteran’s Center manages around 125 homeless Veterans (permanently in some cases, temporarily in others). After speaking with one of the site managers, the Club decided, under the guidance of their teacher mentor, that they would create the kids and include a red t-shirt, a pair of socks, chocolates, cookies, and a card.
It was a successful event that gave the students a chance to interact with their local Veteran’s center and highlight the Red Cross mission!
