Child in Hand

Hello, my name is Olivia Storaci. I am an eighth grader at Westview Middle School and I’m a member of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). As an NJHS member, I had to come up with a project and an organization I would like to help. I was inspired by an organization called Child in Hand. They are working to start a volleyball program in Haiti. They take in donations and that is what I want to help with. I would like to donate used volleyball gear to Child in Hand so they can bring the joy of volleyball to children in Haiti. Please support my efforts by bringing your old or used volleyball gear, (kneepads, bags, volleyballs, jerseys, t-shirts, spandex, water bottles, headbands, etc.) to a drop box in the front office at Silver Creek High School. It will be in the office until April 12. Thank you for supporting this cause!
