news news1 news3Lakeview High School has a numourous amount of fundraisers that are dedicated to helping others such as: Kids are Dimes, Collect Socks for Veterans, and The Toy Drive.

Kids are Dimes, is a fundraiser that allows you to donate your loose change in your first period class. All of the proceeds collected go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This fundraiser started on November 7th and goes through November 18, 2016. Lakeview High School encourages everyone to participate in this fundraiser to help a child that is not as fortunate as you may be. The first period class that has donated the most amount of change will be rewarded with donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts.

Senior Beta Club is working on behalf of the Trumbull County Council of the American Legion to collect socks for our veterans who are living in local nursing homes. The socks are to be all white, men’s and women’s, and they must be new and clean white socks. The collection of these socks will continue until December 2, 2016. Being able to help our veterans that have fought for our lives is a great opportunity. The socks that are being donated should be turned in at the display set up in the media center. But if you are a Senior Beta member who still currently needs points, you will need to bring your directly to Mrs.Sarko in room 224.

The last fundraiser is the Toy Drive. For many years, this fundraiser has been apart of Lakeview High School since being created by former student Hannah Morrison. The collection is now carried on by her sister, Sarah Morrison. The Toy Drive is for the Warren Family Mission. You can donate your toy to the guidance office or the main lobby and receive a free tardy. Also, each time you donate a toy you can enter your name in a drawing and could possibly win the prize of a Lakeview hoodie or a Pizza Joe’s gift card.

Donate to a child in need or one of our cherished veterans and make them feel special this holiday season. Give back to your community and be thankful for the people who have made our lives better and help make the holidays brighter for young children.
