Four student representatives from the Interact, Excel and Conservation Clubs delivered Christmas gifts to ill children and teenagers at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in Hollywood on Tuesday, Dec. 3.
Members of the three clubs, moderated by Mr. Tim Davis, spent numerous weeks collecting and wrapping gifts for patients at the hospital between the ages of 2-17. Once the gifts were wrapped, Davis and the four club representatives set out to deliver the gifts and spread much needed Christmas cheer to those receiving treatment at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.
In total, the students hand-delivered 30 Christmas gifts and even spent some time with the children completing arts and crafts projects.
When reflecting upon the gift delivery, junior Victoria Jewell said, "I had an experience of a lifetime. This opportunity allowed me to spread joy during this holiday season to children who have to be in the hospital during what should be a joyous time of year. It was eye-opening to see kids just like me, and so much younger, endure such pain both physically and emotionally." She continued, "...I really learned to be so thankful for the life and opportunities I have."
