CTA joined the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Foundation for their first ever Make Change Campaign for three weeks during the month of May AND the Chargers raised $1,077.46 in that short time span.  “Our K-5 elementary children really caught the spirit of this campaign,” said Dan George, Superintendent/School Leader at Creative Technologies Academy.  “Our elementary raised about 80% of our total with a lot of pennies!”

“No doubt, a great deal of the enthusiasm for this project is the knowledge that one of our own has benefited from the skills, services, and compassion of Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital,” continued Mr. George.  Lizzie August, a CTA kindergarten student and daughter of CTA Parent Association President, Jennifer August, received long term care last summer and into the school year at the hospital.  “This project fits in well with our service learning program and our character education program.  Our kids are learning the value of giving back.”

As the winning school in the campaign, CTA will be featured in the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Foundation’s For Our Kids newsletter and 4th grade teacher, Amy Burton, who headed up the campaign in the elementary school, will be interviewed by Tommy and Brook on STAR 105.7!
