RANDOLPH, NJ- Students participating in the Randolph High School Tomorrow’s Leaders program, all current seniors, raised almost $2500 through a Service Learning Project to raise awareness and funds for Homeless Solutions, a local charity benefiting local community members in need. The students planned and worked together throughout the year, accepting donations at basketball games, Hoops for the Homeless and playing in a charity basketball game at RHS against Roxbury.
“They have a love of watching basketball, especially their fellow Rams and playing recreationally, and when the course work asks them to look at needs and recipients in the community they wanted to find a way to help those in need through Homeless Solutions,” said Lindsay Brinkerhoff, the advisor for Tomorrow’s Leaders.
“The community came together to show their support of this project and they were able to raise almost $2500.00… We plan to partner with them again next year. I am so proud of the initiative my students took to not only raise money, to work together and always set a good example within the school community. The Tomorrow’s Leaders motto this year has been, Be The Good!”
Tomorrow’s Leaders also assist with many freshman orientation events at the high school including the freshman ropes course in August.
