Making a Difference Club
School has started and everyone seems to be settling into a new year. This is a great time to join an extracurricular activity to help balance your heavy workload with fun, school activities. Making a Difference Club is open to everyone! In M.A.D.C., students are able to help the community and the world around them. With our positive attitudes and efforts, we fundraise, plan and provide for communities all over the world.
In our previous years, we have participated in many different projects. For T-Shirts for Haiti, we raised, boxed, and shipped over 600 t-shirts for Haiti after the devastating earthquake that destroyed many homes. To help fund Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, we baked our own cookies and raised over $800 for the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer campaign. Many students from our school even volunteered at the 2nd Annual Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Bake Sale near the Flatiron building and raised over $40,000 for cancer research. This year, we volunteered at Pier 91 at the Baby Fair to sell cookies.
We have also participated in Pennies for Patients, and various other campaigns. We also collected used sneakers and shoes to contribute to SOLES FOR SOULS as well as towels for our annual HOWL FOR A TOWEL campaign for the ASPCA.
Last year, we wanted to help out the endangered elephants that were being slaughtered for their ivory tusks. To help support the orphan elephants, we adopted an elephant named Eleanor! Yes! An elephant!!! The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is currently caring for Eleanor, where she has a loving family and a wonderful, safe home. Eleanor Roosevelt High School is a community that welcomes new opportunities and ways to make the world a better place. You can be a part of Making a Difference Club and help improve the world around you!
We will be meeting on Wednesdays in room 402. This year we will be involved in the Zimkids Fashion Show as well as continuing our efforts to improve life all around us.
We will elect officers at our first meeting after club fair. COME AND JOIN US!!!
