The kids at elite academy have discovered the drive that comes when helping others.
As a team that met though academic advancement program, they began discussing ways they could make a difference in their community.
After much research they decided that the Eagle Ridge Hospital foundation would be well suited to receive their donations. These students sourced the most in demand products among their peers… Junk Food!
By setting up a snack shack at high school, these students are able to turn a profit on chips. This profit is turned around and donated to Eagle Ridge Hospital.
After hearing about their fundraising efforts, Eagle Ridge Hospital approached the elite academy students to suggest a specialized initiative. The hospital was gearing up for a campaign to raise funds for hearing aid recipients.
So far this year, the Youth Charity Movement has raised $750 which is half way to their goal of $1,500. Previous years they have raised additional funds for the same cause and show no signs of stopping.
Way to go! We are inspired to see youth helping youth!
