This holiday season, some wonderful people at Crescent Valley came together to make a difference and better our community. This year we saw great successes from Raider Royalty, a holiday fundraiser, the holiday bazaar, and a food drive.
The CV Royalty program, led by Mrs. Harder, raises money for Jackson Youth Services, the Old Mill Center, and the Children’s Miracle Network, all of which benefit the Benton County Community. On Nov 15th they won a philanthropic award from the Benton County Foundation, and recently they went caroling for donations in several neighborhoods, and for free at some retirement homes. This year they hope to raise even more money than last time. The holiday fundraiser was put on by one of our junior class presidents with a goal of raising money for 30 CV families in need. Last year they raised around $1900 and this year they raised over $2500. The Holiday Bazaar, which was organized by Bianca Curtin (the sustainability commissioner for core council), raised $216. The proceeds will go to making CV a greener and more sustainable place. Additionally, CV recently had a food drive, which was organized by the administration to make sure no student goes hungry; that also received a wonderful amount of support. These are all heartwarming shows of holiday spirit, but it doesn’t have to stop there. You should get involved too! Next time there’s a food drive or a fundraiser, consider donating. The money you give goes back to the community and makes Corvallis a better place for all of us. Get involved with organizations working for change; after all, finding places to volunteer is just one google search away.
