The campus collected around $3500 for our Day of Caring. on 12-12-14, 16 students traveled to Target to spend a good chunk of that on comfort items to make bags in honor and memory of Riley Pearson, a Mentor High Senior who lost her battle with cancer this past October. Riley created similar bags for kids and our own Roxie Lucas received one. This started the need to pay it forward and back by creating 24 bags for the CLeveland Clinic to share with kids. Students spent around $100 on each of their bags and included sheets, blankets and other comforting items, along with arts, games, soaps, lip balms and more. The remaining money will be donated to The Fisher House and to help support Riley's book.
