Campus Middle School students raised $9,244 by soliciting $1 donations for paper snowflakes to support families coping with the terminal illness of a loved one.
The Denver Hospice announced that the National Junior Honor Society of Campus Middle School, in the Cherry Creek School District, recently raised the money for its Christopher’s Angels Fund.
Sponsored by teachers Meagen Fox, Garrett Weekley, and Cathy Edam, the students raised the money from family members, neighbors and friends.
“The Denver Hospice is grateful for this generous donation from the National Junior Honor Society students at Campus Middle School,” said David Giordano, Vice President of Development for The Denver Hospice, the Denver metro area’s largest not-for-profit hospice and palliative care organization. “The amount of time and hard work put forward to reach their fundraising goal speaks highly of their determination to make a positive difference in their community.”
The donated funds will be contributed to the Christopher’s Angels Fund at The Denver Hospice. Christopher’s Angels Fund is a philanthropically supported special initiative established to assist the non-medical critical needs of eligible families receiving hospice care services.
The fund was created in 1989 by Bob and Donna Johnson in memory of their son, Christopher, who passed away when he was two years old. Their hope was that by creating Christopher’s Angels Fund, they could ease the financial stress on other families coping with the terminal illness of someone they love.
