Day of Giving

The Northwood Huskies and Edgewood Eagles teamed up to prepare for the 8th annual Day of Giving event hosted at Northwood Junior High School.  On November 30, Northwood students and the Student Council and Girl Up club from Edgewood came together for an inspirational assembly featuring Mr. Angel Roman from the Boys and Girls Club of Lake County.  Mr. Roman encouraged the young people in the room to give back to their community; and told them they could make a meaningful difference.  Following the assembly, the students got to work setting up the Northwood gym for the Day of Giving on December 1.  Students organized clothes, toiletries, food and other necessities donated by families across District 112.  Other students made blankets, cards and gift bags for local families.   The 112 Education Foundation is proud to support this service-learning program.  We extend our thanks to Northwood teachers, Constance Cummingham, Ida Fiore and Caitlin Lucci, for their tremendous effort to bring this opportunity to students at Northwood and Edgewood.
