Students break fundraising goal

Members of St. Susanna’s National Junior Honor Society took on a fundraising challenge and broke a record by collecting $1,000 to help buy infant warmers for the Special Care Nursery at Hendricks Regional Health.

As a group, they decided to create a “Coins for Cribs” challenge, with the winning classes from grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 receiving ice cream sundaes.

In addition, school administrators agreed to award the entire study body a dress down day if a goal of $300 was reached. Needless to say, students enjoyed their dress down day with $1,000 contributed, and sundaes were enjoyed by the three winning classe,s plus seventh- and eighth-grade students in the National Junior Honor Society.

Julia Mulholland, a Hendricks Regional Health Foundation board member, told the students about the need for the new warmers and invited them to participate.

“The students took the idea and ran with it,” she said. “During my visit with them, I wasn’t sure what they would come up with, and I’m proud of the outstanding result.”

Mulholland visited the students with Foundation director Sue Bogan to express their thanks and let them know they were the first school to contribute.

“We would love for every school in Hendricks County to take part, in some way, in this meaningful project in which Hendricks County kids can help Hendricks County kids,” Bogan said. “Our volunteer board members are contacting local schools to invite their participation either this spring or next fall. Fundraising efforts will continue through December, so if it’s too late to plan something before school ends, we’re happy to work with them in the fall. So far, Tri-West High School, Tri-West Middle School, North Salem Elementary, South Elementary in Danville, and Avon Intermediate School West have expressed interest in participating.”

To join in the fundraising, contact Bogan by calling 745-7376 or by e-mailing to sebogan@hendricks.org

The mission of the Hendricks Regional Health Foundation is to build healthy families by supporting the needs of patients and programs at Hendricks Regional Health that enhance patient comfort, safety, and medical care. For more information, visit the website at www.SupportHendricks.org.
