Help DCHS Make A Wish for Jacob!

In keeping with our plan for providing “community give back” opportunities, we are excited to participate with Douglas County High School for the Douglas County High School Make A Wish Week 2016. Please read below the Make A Wish information about Jacob from Castle Rock.

We will be placing a Donation Box in the lobby beginning Friday, January 22nd. There is also the simple process of handling it with the donation link below. Time will get away from us because collection ends Monday, February 1st.  Please have your kiddos contribute any loose change in the lobby donation box.

Thank you in advance for all contributions!

From the Douglas County High School:

Douglas County’s Wish Week 2016 is just around the corner (starts Friday, January 22nd through Monday, February 1st). For those of you who don’t know what Wish Week is, here is a brief synopsis of what we are trying to do through the Make-A Wish foundation.

Since 1983, the Make-A-Wish Colorado Foundation has had the privilege of changing the lives and lifting the spirits of Colorado children with life-threatening medical conditions. Proceeds from the Make-A-Wish fundraising efforts are used to fulfill children’s dreams and create special memories for the entire family. They have done so for more than 4,400 children throughout the entire state.

DCHS can’t wait to begin the journey to hopefully grant a deserving child their wish! This year our “Wish Child” is a 12-year old boy named Jacob. Jacob has been diagnosed with Astrocytoma (a tumor that arises from the star-shaped cells (astrocytes) that form the supportive tissue of the brain). Jacob’s wish is to go to Hawaii and see where Jurassic World was filmed. Some of Jacob’s hobbies include math class, playing lacrosse, and hanging out with his friends.

Student Council at DCHS couldn’t be more excited to host another Wish Week and help raise money for the foundation. We are asking for more support than ever before. Our goal is $20,000 or more. Last year DCHS raised nearly $17,500, so we hope to top that in 2016. A very important note is that Jacob is from Castle Rock, so we want to help give one of our “own” a memory that he’ll never forget.Please encourage your children to contribute to the effort! We accept cash donations and loose change throughout the week in the designated donation boxes around the school.
