Sweet Cases at GCCHS
A service project of the Global Concepts Charter High School Senior Honors Seminar.
Join the Senior Honors Seminar students at Global Concepts Charter High School in helping to raise awareness of and funds for children in foster care. Every $25 raised provides a Sweet Case (blue duffle bag, hygiene products, personal items, etc.) for a child entering foster care. When entering foster care, most children are only given two trash bags to pack their belongings and take with them when being removed their home. The Sweet Cases program provides a more dignified response to assist children during a very difficult time in life. Please join our students in raising funds to donate to a very worthy cause. Students in the Senior Honors Seminar class will be decorating Sweet Cases and the donating them to a local foster care agency. Thank you for your support.
-Mr. Whitley-Grassi, Social Studies Teacher
Through the generous support of students, staff, and online donors, the Honors Seminar 12 students Sweet Cases campaign raised over $ 900 to provide duffle bags, hygiene supplies, personal items, and teddy bears for children entering foster care in the local community. We partnered with the organization Together We Rise, which is a national nonprofit dedicated to providing supportive services to children in foster care and our first campaign was a great success.
Next, the students will be hosting a service day in December to decorate and stuff the bags then we will be donating them to GA Family Services of West Seneca to help foster children in our community. Thank you to everyone who donated or shared our online campaign link and to administration for supporting our students in raising funds for a worthy cause. One Global!
