The holiday season is soon and besides presents and holiday cheer, helping the community is on Health teacher Ryan Cox’s mind.

Philanthropy (service) projects are a part of the Health class curriculum that is required by students. Cox has built the service project into the class in hopes of creating an example of the graduate profile pillar.

“I have had students over the three semesters that I have done this project with that have raised thousands of dollars, countless cans of food, hundreds of jacket, coats and blankets, and even one group who was able to collect 300 plus stuffed animals for holiday gifts,” Cox said.

There are more than 10 projects being done this semester and many are still open to donations and help. Here is a list of all of these philanthropy projects being done this semester. To donate to one or more of the projects and/or get more information contact Coach Ryan Cox at [email protected].

The list of service projects is below:

 

  • Samaritan Inn volunteering

  • Homeless Shelter volunteering
