Greenfield High School brings Joy to the Needy

Jan. 10, 2011

Under the leadership of Greenfield High School Alternative Education and Language Arts teacher Donna Crnovich, the Greenfield High School National Honor Society helped make the Christmas Season a joyous one for nearly 50 area families. With kind donations from School District of Greenfield students, staff, residents, and others, the National Honor Society (NHS) filled the GHS Hawks’ Dome with thousands of gently-used clothing, food, and gift items.

 

On December 18, the NHS opened the doors of the Hawk’s Dome to scores of families whose economic circumstances were very much lacking this holiday season. Inside the Dome, Holiday Sharing Program participants could select from the many items available to them. Each family also received $80 - $160 in gift certificates to Aldi’s and K-mart. The amount of the certificates was determined by the size of the family.

 

In addition to the items made available at the Hawks’ Dome event, NHS was able to donate the following to a number of worthy causes:

 

•Two carloads of toys, 200 new hats/gloves, and several boxes of children’s books to St. Francis Hospital for waiting rooms, Pediatric and Emergency Departments.

 

•$450 in gift certificates to hospice families at St. Francis Hospital.

 

•150 new stuffed animals to St. Francis Hospital.

 

•Approximately 4,000+ items of clothing to the Winter Clothes Closet on 22nd and Mitchell for distribution to needy families.

 

•Thirty boxes of food to the South Side Emergency Food Pantry, the largest donation in their history.

 

•Five truckloads of food to St. Martin of Tours Emergency Food Pantry. It was the largest donation in their history.

 

•New Afghans (about 15) will be donated to the Oncology Alliance for people receiving chemotherapy.

 

•Emergency boxes of hats, scarves, and gloves were sent to each of the four elementary schools in the Greenfield District. There were about 75 - 85 items in each box.

 

•Toys, hats/gloves, and candy will be donated to the Battered Women’s Shelter.

 

•2,000 candy bags were made and distributed to needy students on the south side.

 

•A donation of toys will be made to the Ronald McDonald House.

 

•150 Beanie Babies were donated to a medical team working through Wheaton-St. Francis that will be going to Haiti to give vaccinations to little children.

 

Special thanks to all those who made donations, Aldi’s Foods and K-mart Department Store.
