Barrington High School’s “IT” campaign has chosen Shelter, Inc. as its charity for the 2013-2014 school year. The BHS club raises funds for a local charity or non-profit each year and is based on the concept of paying “it” forward.
Shelter, Inc. provides community based, emergency and long-term housing for children and adolescents who are abused, neglected, dependent, or in need of supervision.
Over the past four years, students have raised between $15,000 and $20,000 for the chosen charity.
The 2012-2013 recipient was Home of the Sparrow, a non-profit organization that works to move women and children from homelessness into housing by providing support services and transitional housing. Here’s the student-produced video highlighting last year’s campaign.
