School clubs help those affected by hurricanes

​​Days​ ​after​ ​Hurricane​ ​Irma​ ​slammed​ ​Florida's​ ​coast Rhinelander High School​ ​FBLA/DECA​ ​member​ ​Brittany​ ​Curby​ ​emailed​ ​advisor​ ​Ms.​ ​Fryar​ ​asking​ ​if the​ ​club​ ​could​ ​do​ ​something​ ​to​ ​help​ ​the​ ​victims.​ ​According to a school district press release,​ ​the FBLA/DECA​ ​officer​ ​team jumped​ ​at​ ​the​ ​idea​ ​and​ ​contacted​ ​the​ ​advisors​ ​of​ ​other​ ​high​ ​school​ ​clubs​ ​to​ ​get them​ ​involved​ ​as​ ​well.​ ​Members​ ​from​ ​organizations​ ​all​ ​over​ ​the​ ​Rhinelander​ ​High School​ ​campus​ ​including​ ​FBLA/DECA,​ ​FCCLA,​ ​HOSA,​ ​Key​ ​Club,​ ​National​ ​Honor Society,​ ​Project​ ​Unify,​ ​and​ ​Student​ ​Council​ ​put​ ​their​ ​heads​ ​together​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a school​-wide​ ​event​ ​called​ ​Dollars​ ​for​ ​Disasters.

The​ ​event,​ ​held​ ​during​ ​homeroom​ ​period​ ​on​ ​Tuesday,​ ​was​ ​a​ ​minute​-long fundraiser​ ​benefitting​ ​those​ ​affected​ ​by​ ​natural​ ​disasters​ ​over​ ​the​ ​past​ ​several weeks, the release states.​ ​In​ ​the​ ​week​ ​prior​ ​to​ ​the​ ​event​ ​students​ ​representatives​ ​from​ ​the​ ​involved clubs​ ​advertised​ ​the​ ​event​ ​via​ ​posters​ ​all​ ​over​ ​the​ ​school​. They also​ ​reminded students​ ​in​ ​the​ ​announcements​ ​and​ ​painted​ ​the​ ​window​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Digital​ ​Media Center​ ​classroom.

"In​ ​the​ ​recent​ ​weeks​ ​there​ ​have​ ​been​ ​many​ ​natural​ ​disasters​ ​including​ ​hurricanes Harvey,​ ​Maria,​ ​Irma,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​many​ ​devastating​ ​forest​ ​fires," the release states. "These​ ​disasters destroyed​ ​millions​ ​of​ ​homes,​ ​schools,​ ​businesses,​ ​and​ ​even​ ​lives.​ ​Thousands​ ​of people​ ​all​ ​over​ ​the​ ​country​ ​are​ ​left​ ​with​ ​nothing​ ​to​ ​go​ ​home​ ​to,​ ​all of​ ​their​ ​belongings having​ ​been​ ​destroyed.​ ​The​ ​funds​ ​raised​ ​during​ ​Dollars​ ​for​ ​Disasters​ ​will​ ​be donated​ ​to​ ​the​ ​American​ ​Red​ ​Cross​ ​which​ ​has​ ​publicly​ ​promised​ ​to​ ​donate​ ​91 cents​ ​for​ ​every​ ​dollar​ ​donated​ ​to​ ​victims​ ​of​ ​the​ ​natural​ ​disasters. The​ ​total​ ​collected​ ​during​ ​the​ ​fundraiser​ ​was​ ​$750.​ ​This​ ​project​ ​was​ ​able​ ​to​ ​not only​ ​help​ ​those​ ​in​ ​crisis​ ​situations​ ​but​ ​also​ ​unite​ ​our​ ​school​ ​for​ ​a​ ​common​ ​good that​ ​seems​ ​so​ ​distant​ ​from​ ​our​ ​local​ ​community."

​ ​For​ ​more​ ​information​ ​about​ ​the project,​ ​contact​ ​teacher​ ​and​ ​FBLA/DECA​ ​chapter​ ​advisor​ ​Mischell​ ​Fryar​ ​at​ ​715-362-​​9500​ ​or​ ​​​.
