Do Good December
During the month of December, NDP clubs are taking the opportunity to do service and fundraising for charities of their choice. They will host little fundraisers during the week of Nov. 30 - Dec. 4. We are proud of the following clubs for their kind service to others this Advent season!
Build-It Club - Notes for Essential Healthcare Workers
Write a note or card to essential healthcare workers this December to be delivered to the Mayo Clinic and Honor Health Hospitals. They worked hard all year dealing with COVID-19. Submit your note here.
Christian Leadership Class - Benefitting Ryan House
Candy Cane-grams will be sold for $1 each during break and lunch all week long. The proceeds will be used to purchase items needed by Ryan House, a caregiving facility that provides respite and palliative care for children and their families as they navigate life-limiting or end-of-life journeys (https://www.ryanhouse.org).
HopeKids Club - Fuzzy Socks Drive
Please donate fuzzy socks for children living with life-threatening illnesses. The collection box is in the COMM. The club will also be making hot chocolate kits to wrap with the socks to be delivered before Christmas. Learn more about HopeKids here: https://www.hopekids.org/
PAWS and Baking Clubs - Treats For Foothills Animal Rescue
These two clubs are joining forces to make homemade dog treats which they will sell to raise money for Foothills Animal Rescue. Dog treats can be purchased during the week of Do Good December on campus. (https://foothillsanimal.org/)
Robotics Club - Benefit Buttons for e-NABLE
Purchase custom buttons from the Robotics team throughout the week of Do Good December and help them raise money for e-NABLE, who makes 3D printed hand prosthetics for people in need.
e-NABLE is an online global community of “Digital Humanitarian” volunteers from all over the world who are using their 3D printers to make free and low-cost prosthetic upper limb devices for children and adults in need. The open-source designs created by e-NABLE volunteers help those who were born missing their fingers and hands or who have lost them due to war, natural disaster, illness or accidents. http://enablingthefuture.org/

This club will be writing virtual notes of encouragement thanking healthcare professionals for their service during the pandemic. These notes will be displayed on the log-in pages of Honor Health Hospital. Click here to submit a note of thanks and encouragement.
Veteran’s Heritage Project - Wreaths Across America
Buy hot chocolate and come enjoy a Christmas movie in the COMM to support Wreaths Across America (https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/). Hot chocolate will be sold for $2 a cup in order to provide wreaths for the graves in our National military cemeteries.
