The Fairbury High school Spanish club has decided to continue their 5 days of Christmas celebration by having a donation drive to the Hope Crisis Center once again. The Hope Crisis Center is a non-profit organization that provides shelter and services to those who have experienced domestic violence and sexual assault. Last year the organization encouraged students and staff to donate items including toilet paper, soap, paper towels, etc. The club will start collecting donations on Monday December 14 through December 18. Spanish club members will be in the commons to collect the donations starting at 8 a.m. Because of the pandemic the Hope Crisis Center needs more donations than ever. They have recently had a shortage of supplies and the most needed supplies as of right now include Paper towels, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, trash bags, and plastic cutlery.
Students who donate supplies will have their name put into a drawing where they will have the chance to win a prize. Each donation is equal to one entry.
“It’s important for us as a community to donate necessary supplies to them so that they can keep providing their services,” Spanish club member Brylee Yantz ’21 said.
This project is a way for students and community members to give back to those in need in our community. Everyday products that some of us take for granted are items that others do not have access to. Give back this holiday season and consider donating to the Hope Crisis Center through the Fairbury High school Spanish Club.
