Kennett High School recently recognized the KHS Humanitarian Club and Mini-THON Committee for demonstrating Kennett P.R.I.D.E. through their community service activities.
The Humanitarian Club held a successful food drive at Kennett High School during the month of October. Additional cans of food were collected as admission to the family-oriented Fall Festival, organized by Co-Chairs, Olivia Pagliaro and Ben Skross. As a result of their efforts, the KHS Humanitarian Club delivered over three tons of food and five hundred dollars to the Kennett Food Cupboard, benefiting over 500 families in the Kennett Square area.
The Mini-THON is an eight-hour dance marathon modeled after Penn State’s THON. Austin Maxwell, Mini-THON Committee Chair, reported that Kennett High School’s Mini-THON raised $20,790 this past February for the Four Diamonds Organization, providing financial assistance to families who have a child battling cancer as well as funds for pediatric cancer research. The goal for this year is to raise $65,000 at the Mini-THON scheduled for February 24 – 25, 2017.
Jackie Tucker and Molly Adelman, Co-Presidents of the Humanitarian Club, report a combined membership of approximately 125 high school students in the Humanitarian Club and Mini-THON Committee. Kennett High School commends these students for making a difference in their school and community!
