Glover CLC Donates Profits to Project RISE

Posted on 07/05/2019

The Glover Gazette is the product of a wonderful team of teachers and volunteers who were able to inspire a talented group of young students to create and sell a school newspaper every month of the school year. They sell these papers for only 25 cents, and this year their goal was to raise funds to donate to a local nonprofit. By the end of May, they had raised $600! The teacher in charge of this fundraiser is Dana Davis. She was helped by another teacher at Glover, Sandy Shoemaker. On the last day of school this year, Dana Davis invited Project Rise staff to come meet the class and accept the donation. Amanda Smith, Special Programming Assistant at Project Rise, was able to meet the energetic group of students. Project Rise would like to give a huge thank-you to all the students who were a part of the Glover Gazette team this year. Amanda had this to say after meeting the students: “They were so sweet. I explained how amazing they were for all their hard work making and selling the newspapers. I wanted them to know why they did it for Project Rise and to understand that their donations truly go to helping families in their community. They all got huge smiles on their faces and gave me hugs. It was really great to see so much passion from such young students.” Project Rise is excited to see what The Glover Gazette will accomplish next year!

 Project Rise is a collaborative effort by Akron Public Schools, local shelters and the Akron community to provide supplemental educational services to children and youth experiencing homelessness.
