‘Caring Crew’ Raises Funds for Eastern Illinois Foodbank

Eastern Illinois Foodbank

Despite the many restrictions imposed by the pandemic, Academy High students have been very active in their efforts to support those in need in our larger community, particularly those struggling with food insecurity during these difficult times. Thanks to the efforts of our new student-led service club, the ‘Caring Crew’, Academy High is helping to make a difference. Following their recent Thanksgiving holiday card-making project for residents at Clark-Lindsey retirement home, the CaringClub teamed up with the Parents Association for our recent End-of-SemesterParty and Fundraiser to raise money for the AHPA and the Eastern Illinois FoodBank, where $1 donation provides five meals.

The total amount raised by the Caring Club from this event?

  • $1,385, which will help provide over 6,000 meals to families in our community.

Congratulations on this remarkable achievement!
