It is now officially AMF Service Challenge season! Students across the Tri-State area are using their motivation and inspiration from #EmpoweredCincy18 to impact their community one project at a time. Here’s a look at our first Service Challenge Projects of the season:
Cincinnati College Preparatory Academy
Cincinnati College Preparatory Academy (CCPA) hosted a “Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Walk.” This united the students of CCPA to raise money and participate in a walk from their school to the Cincinnati Museum Center. Students decorated signs to carry on their walk honoring all that have been affected by Breast Cancer. This event was especially important to the students of CCPA because two teachers, Ms. Debra Sellers and Ms. Ann Brinkley are both Breast Cancer Survivors. Students and staff of CCPA were encouraged to wear pink and rally together to bring awareness to those who have been affected by Breast Cancer. All money that was raised was donated to the American Cancer Society. Great job, CCPA!
Milford High School
Students of Milford High School have also started their Service Challenge project by partnering with “Wrapping Clermont Together” for this holiday season. Their goal is collect 75 baskets filled with health and beauty aids. They will be collecting donations up until December 4th, 2018 when they will be hosting a breakfast for community members to showcase their collections. At that time, they will also present the donations to the representatives from “Wrapping Clermont Together”, along with a check to The Mary Miller Foundation. We are excited to see the outcome!
Lakota East High School
Lakota East High School has also jump started their Service Challenge project by pairing with rival school, Lakota West. On December 14th, 2018 they will be hosting a toy drive to benefit Toys for Tots. This will take place during their boys’ varsity basketball game against Lakota West. They are encouraging fans to bring a toy of at least $10 value to donate to the cause. Can’t wait to see the impact this has this holiday season!
