Advanced Placement Government Class Philanthropy Project

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Advanced Placement Government class wins Norfolk Philanthropy Association grant of $1000 to provide assistance for Bright Horizons.

The class project was designed to help people fleeing domestic abuse to have some essential items.  The class collected and purchased items to put in backpacks that can be handed out to people seeking help at Bright Horizons.  Students put together a presentation for the Norfolk Philanthropy Association to win the grant.  Then, they set up a table in the Forum and presented their information to the government classes. Students donated many items, but there was still a lot to buy.  They needed some type of container, so two students sought out the Kiwanis, who purchased 100 backpacks.  then, students got together at Mrs. Steinkamp’s house and filled the bags with shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotion, feminine products, t-shirts, socks, and other emergency necessities.  They also created baby care bags that included diapers, lotion, baby wash, wipes, and socks.
