Lincoln Way North – Make a Difference Day

Each of us has an opportunity to make a difference in another person’s life. This fall at Lincoln-Way High School District 210 students opened their hearts and wallets for a series of Make a Difference Day projects Lincoln-Way North Physical Education classes chose to support the Angels R Watching Foundation by collecting school supplies for underprivileged children.

The group collected over 725 school supplies and 120 pieces of athletic equipment. These items will be donated to Chicago Public Schools and community centers.

Teri Cardamone-Shake, Founder of Angels R Watching couldn’t agree more with the words of Superintendent Lawrence A. Wyllie who said, “Anything we can do as a school to impress on our kids that in order to help make this world a better place for all of us to live and work we must reach out to help others. Our staff and students have always been good at these types of programs, but it is more important now
than ever before.”

Angels R Watching Foundation, based in Mokena, seeks to enhance awareness of the importance of children having the tools they need to succeed in school. They invite community members to join their efforts to obtain school supplies for underprivileged students in America by building local collection programs. The foundation acts as a liaison between local agencies and the recipients of the supplies.
