The Kind Committee’s vision came into reality on Friday, October 24th. Under the direction of Ms. Laura Iannotti, and the assistance of Mr. Dave Kolber, the entire Springman community, along with representatives from the Glenview Police and Fire departments, created a living “human pink ribbon” on their south field. The goal of this event was to raise awareness, and funds, to support those afflicted with breast cancer and the research focused on finding a cure.
During the week of October 20th, the Kind Committee made daily morning announcements with information and statistics about breast cancer so Springman staff and students would understand why it would be important for them to contribute to the group’s fundraising efforts. In addition to announcements, Kind Committee members sold pink bracelets and pink paper ribbons so students and staff could show their support for the cause. The building, and grounds, were decked in pink with ribbons, balloons, posters, and more so there was no mistaking the goal of the week - THINK PINK!
A fundraising bake sale at a volleyball game raised an amazing $1000. This might have something to do with the baking efforts of the 40+ members of the Kind Committee! All of the funds raised through the bake sale, bracelet and ribbon sales, an direct donations will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The Committee hopes to have a final total this week and donations can still be made via the Kind Committee’s BDRF Fundraising Webpage.
