A member of NDA Interact worked the 1st annual Chicks and Chucks High School Tennis tournament that raised money for the treatment of breast cancer. This volunteer worked 7 hours on March 21 and March 22.
The Interact Club of Tavistock Devon in the UK and NDA Interact of Kentucky, USA had a Skype session today that yielded many positive results. The two Interact Clubs will be combining forces in a friendly contest at Freerice.com. The two clubs will also be initiating a pen-pal program and engaging in other contests to raise awareness and funds for various good causes.
NDA’s Interact Club has collected and entered many Coke Rewards points over the past 2 years. We made use of many of these points to buy a new stereo system for the office of Campus Ministry at Notre Dame Academy and to buy 72 large rectangular erasers for students at the Notre Dame Urban Education Center. The stereo used by Campus Ministry broke this past December and the director of NDUEC requested erasers as a pressing need!
NDA Interact played a key role in the 2014 Homeless to Hopeful event held at Notre Dame Academy to benefit the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky and Family Promise of Northern Kentucky. NDA Interact did the following:
- We were in charge of selling student tickets and sold 21 tickets totaling $105 to be split evenly between the two organizations
- Members contributed to a bake sale that helped raise funds at the event
- NDA Interact held an impromptu bake sale after school on 2-28-2014 that raised an additional $42.75 for the event.
- 3 Members of NDA Interact each volunteered 4 hours for the event by selling concessions and serving as ushers.
- 21 NDA students helped the event to raise over $16,000 to be divided between each agency
