Generous people for a good cause
On Sunday, November 1 one car after another passed through the Wheeler Steffen Sotheby rear parking lot in Claremont to make donations supporting Inland Valley Hope Partners. As the bags of donations increased, the Claremont High School Interact Club stepped in to manage the entire food drive in a safe environment. “Scare away hunger” is an important yearly event for the CHS Interact Club, as members work hard to create an event that makes a real difference.
There was no question hard work went hand in hand with success as the Club loaded over 900 food items—mostly canned goods—into a large truck filled inside and out. The three hours students spent organizing hundreds of donations was a small amount of time compared to the planning and preparation—all the way down to writing their own press release for the COURIER. Oh yes, did I mention Interact also accepted over $900 in cash! Generous people giving to a good cause. It doesn’t get any better than that. —PW
