GENEVA — As we all enter the coming holiday season, students at Geneva High School are once again busy with projects and activities to benefit the entire community. One such group of students is the Geneva High School chapter of Project Love, which is a national organization that works to create a more positive school environment. Members of Project Love, in collaboration with the American Red Cross, the Senior Steering Committee and National Honor Society, are preparing for their annual G.E.T.M.A.D. (Geneva Eagles Together Making A Difference) donation drive.
The adviser, Jessica George, is determined to make this year’s drive a success. “The G.E.T.M.A.D. donation drive allows the students to branch out into the community for a positive experience,” she said.
Group members are hoping to collect any donations that can be passed on to families in need, such as non-perishable food items, toiletries, gently used or new toys and winter-wear, such as coats, hats and gloves. These donations will be given to families through local churches, and the donated toys will be distributed by the county HALO (Holiday Angels Loving Others) program.
The drive will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 8 at Geneva High School in the front parking lot. In addition to the food and clothing drive, baked goods and hot chocolate will be available, and Santa and his elves will also be making an appearance. The American Red Cross will be there from noon to 4 p.m. to take blood donations. Community members can drop off items at any time from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and students will be on hand to help with unloading.
