Recently the Community Service portfolio, led by the extremely diligent Stephanie and Elizabeth, took on and graciously completed probably one of the most challenging projects executed by this portfolio, which is the
Santa’s Shoebox drive.
This drive consists of the widespread donations of several goodies including toiletries, clothing, toys, and more, which are all then donated to underprivileged children. Donations were accepted throughout all grades in both the Woodland Heights campus and Struben house. Stephanie and Elizabeth worked tirelessly towards implementing sufficient advertisements and admin for the project, and making sure as many people as possible were informed about the project, to ensure the maximum number of boxes would be handed in. Their original goal was to donate 150 boxes, but ISCT absolutely crushed it, and were able to donate a total of 240 shoeboxes, which is more than triple the amount that was donated last year! Their unflagging efforts to encourage ISCT to come together in participating in such a loving and great cause really paid off. A group of students including the portfolio
leaders dropped off the boxes on Friday the 29th of October. Having been there myself, I can attest that the people collecting the donations were overjoyed at the number of boxes received from our school. ISCT should be thrilled that our community contributed to the happiness of so many children, who deserve a merry Christmas more than anyone. The school is so proud, and I’m sure that everyone is looking forward to supporting the Community Service Portfolio’s upcoming events!
