On December 14th and 18th, 2018, the Student Corps Chapters from Southern California teamed up to raise funds for the 2018 Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County Holiday Angels Program. We raised over $2400 on the GoFundme from donations nationwide and over $700 from company donations. We were able to provide gifts to around 30 Holiday Angels, low-income students who are members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County.
The donation was followed by an award ceremony for the PVSA with each medal given by Lynne West, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County!
Great job, Southern California!
On December 15th, members of Lexington High Chapter and LexiBright Chapter held a food drive. Over 20 students showed up and raised much more than previous years. All food will be donated to the Lexington Food Pantry. Awesome work students!
On Saturday, September 9th, 2018, a Boston group of 40+ Student Corps members ran a booth at the Asian American Day festival at Boston Common. All money raised will be donated to the A Life A Time organization, which provides medical aid for children with third-degree burns. Awesome work, students!
On 6/18/2018 and 8/16/2018 two groups of Student Corps members raised money, one for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County, and the other for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area. Both groups of students are based in California. Thank you for all the hard work students!
On April 21st and 22nd, 2018, the Lexington Minuteman Chapter hosted a fundraiser for child burn survivors. At downtown Lexington, MA, they raised a total of $1390. All profits will go to help the patients to receive necessary treatment. Excellent work, students!
