Braveheart Club Makes a Difference

Braveheart Community Service Club of Holliston was founded between the fifth grade class at Miller Elementary School and Holliston High School. In Braveheart, high school and fifth grade students (members listed below) work side by side to select and support local community service causes. The club served to empower elementary school students with the understanding that they can make a difference at any age by taking action around community causes with high school students.

During the eight weeks these students have worked together, supervised by third grade teacher Susan McGee and high school teacher Jennifer Lasher, they have chosen to support animals in shelters and children in hospitals. The members supported these causes through a community-wide raffle. All proceeds went to Baypath Humane Society, Milford Humane Society, and Framingham Union Hospital’s Pediatric Wing. Framingham Union Hospital’s pediatric patients also received cards made by Braveheart members.

The club members raised a total of $754.00, which they delivered to both organizations this past weekend, thanks to the generosity of the community and their own hard work selling raffle tickets. The raffle winner received a gift basket with gift cards from Coffee Haven, Superette, Fiske’s General Store, Elegante Nails, Bazel’s Pizza & Subs, Kamala Boutique, Bertuccis, The Yoga Exchange, and Prana Yoga & Acting Center.

These members not only made a difference in the community around them, but they proved to themselves the positive impact they are capable of making, the fulfillment which comes from serving others, and the brave heart of each individual.
