Lakehill's sophomore class raised over $800 for Crossroads Community Services through pizza and snack sales and a Half-Court Shot raffle. They were able to present a check to the organization on March 17 during their class meeting.
Crossroads Executive Director Jay Cole and Development Associate Hannah Kennedy were at Lakehill to accept the donation and tell the students more about how their donation would be utilized. "Your gift will provide essential food and clothing assistance to men, women, and children in need in Dallas County," said Cole. "The $838.52 will provide approximately $8,385 worth of nutritious groceries for families in need." Cole explained that each dollar raised can be used to purchase $10 worth of food for the Crossroads store.
"It feels really good to know that we could have an impact on so many lives," said Class President Lovely Lopez. Class Vice-President Ashley Peacock agreed. "It's amazing how many people we helped with the money we raised."
