CAS students support Aktion Lichtblicke e. V. with our school bus!
ISR students: Hanna D., Marius E., Justus S., Jonathan S., Kotaro K. and Vincent G. handed over a donation of 1000 € to support Aktion Lichtblicke e. V. The students prompted and motivated pedestrians in Neuss and Düsseldorf to take and post a picture of the yellow American school bus on ISR’s Facebook page. ISR donated 1 € for every picture posted. This was a fantastic learning experience for all students involved.
Gift boxes for Neusser Tafeln
ISR families once again extended their help to the Neusser Tafel e. V. this year. Among other things, non-perishable foods and toiletries were collected and beautifully wrapped in 35 gift boxes. These were handed out to needy families in Neuss.
Presents for the Family Center in Neuss and the Kaarst Orphanage
Another charity was chosen that specifically targeted children at the Family Center in Neuss and the Kaarst Orphanage. ISR families donated Christmas gifts in value from 10 € to 20 €. This year, 134 gifts were handed out amongst both shelters.
Penny Race for Petting Zoo Arche Noah Meerbusch e. V.
This year’s penny race fundraiser went to help the Petting Zoo Arche Noah Meerbusch e. V. An astonishing sum of 850 € was collected. This initiative was called into life by Grade 6 students, who discovered that the zoo needed financial help in order to feed and care for the animals during the cold winter months.
Thank you to all of the students and parents who worked so hard on these projects and made the impossible possible!
