Spartans Make a Change Fundraiser

Deztine Carter, Spartan Life Editor

Doherty’s AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) seniors have launched “Spartans Make a Changefundraiser. They need your help! Support our school’s Community Liaison, Mrs. Villareal in efforts to aid Doherty’s students and families each and every day.

According to Mrs. Turner, Mrs. Villarruel explained that there is an urgent need for items including, “…brand new socks and undergarments, school supplies, hygiene products, and new or gently used clothing and shoes.” This is a great way to give back to your community!

In need of these items? Fear not, Mrs. Villareal is open to discuss and aid you or a loved one in order to help. She collects donations all the time; ensuring “everything is clean and ready to give [to] another.” 

Donations will be accepted in Room 207 and at the front office. Items will be collected from now through Friday, April 23rd. If you cannot donate anything, promote this cause, so others may hear about it and spread the word!

We cannot do this without you. Doherty’s senior AVID students put together this entire project! From choosing the project’s name…”Spartans Make a Change” to designing the logo for the project (courtesy of DHS senior Hoai Nguyen) to planning “…how to raise money and chose to use SnapRaise as it is a program that with hard work up front, inviting people to donate through emails and providing them with this [link] is helpful way to get donations.”

AVID is already making progress! Using their QR code (picture to the right), staff and students have already donated what they could. The goal is to “raise enough money and collect enough items to fill the shelves in Ms. V’s office.” So help AVID make a positive change at Doherty! 

Donations will be accepted in the form of items, money, and donated through S April 23…Raffle tickets will be given out to anyone who donates items for a chance to win a Dutch Bros gift card! So collect your items or change and help Spartans Make a Change!
