Rachel Lamoureaux– Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – As the holidays approach the LRHS Student Government Association (SGA) is starting to collect Angel Tree donations. These gift donations are taken to the Salvation Army to be distributed to less-fortunate families during the holiday season.
Donations are being collected in the cafeteria during all lunches until Nov. 8. Those who choose to participate are given a slip with an assigned child and two listed items, one item the child needs and one item the child wishes to have.
This past Christmas, LRHS helped donate gifts to 90 unfortunate children and helped fill their holidays with cheer.
SGA member junior Ben Dunn said, “I think this fundraiser is really good for helping out the less fortunate and it warms my heart to know people care to help.”
SGA members say this is a convenient way for Mustangs to do a good deed and give less fortunate kids a Christmas to remember.
