D95 Gives Back Initiative- 2019

In an effort to promote the wonderful work District 95 learners do for others, the Foundation partnered with the District and PTO’s/service organizations at EVERY school to coordinate an Innaugural “D95 Gives Back” Initiative in honor of National Volunteer Week April 7-13.

The efforts were amazing! Check out what each school did during that week:

  • Spencer Loomis raised over $1,000, collected over 100 lbs of supplies, and made over 1,000 dog toys for Orphans of the Storm!

  • Sarah Adams collected toiletry items for Alpine Chapel Food Pantry!
  • Seth Paine had a PJs and Pantry Day, to collect items for Alpine Chapel!
