Life Skills class donates money from holiday elves to Endless Highway
Students in the Life Skills class at the high school spent time during November and December crafting Buddy the Elves, working together to assemble the dolls using rice and other materials. Once assembled, students sold the elves to staff members throughout the district to raise proceeds for Endless Highway. 111 elves were crafted and sold, raising $772 to donate to the organization.
Endless Highway is a local not-for-profit organization dedicated to ensuring children and adults who use mobility devices have opportunities to participate in adaptive and inclusive sports, recreation, and arts. A representative from the organization visited the class in February to discuss what the organization does and how they have helped students right here in the Churchville-Chili School District. A check was presented to Endless Highway during the visit.
Each year, the class selects a different organization to donate the funds raised through the holiday craft sale. Since beginning the tradition in 2005, the Life Skills class has raised a total of $14,545 for charity. Charities supported in the past include the American Heart Association, Gigi's Playhouse, the Willie Bee Foundation, Golisano Children's Hospital, among others.
Thank you to everyone who helped support the class and Endless Highway!
