Guatemala Trip Clothing Drive on Friday

This Friday (3/10) there will be a Saver’s clothing drive to benefit the students from RHS who are going on the Guatemala Trip in April.

If the group can collect 400 bags of donations, Savers will donate $1,000 to the trip.

If you have any clothing or other soft household items (blankets, pillows etc) you would like to donate, just toss them in a 13-gallon bag and bring them in on Friday. The truck will be coming at 3PM on Friday to pick up the goods.  Any donation is greatly appreciated as it will bring the group closer to reaching their goal!

Working with Worthy Village RHS students will help people of Guatemala use water filters to provide clean drinking water for their families.

15 students and staff from Rockland High School are taking a trip to Panajachel, Guatemala during April vacation this year. April vacation starts on the 14th, and ends on the 23rd.Students will be treated to beautiful scenery there, but the trip to Guatemala is more of a service trip than a trip to go sightseeing. Mrs. Shaughnessy, one of the chaperones along with Ms. Lanigan and Mr. Connors,  says, “We will be teaching the kids how to install water filters, and teach impoverished families how to filter the water so they can have clean drinking water.”

The people going on the trip include 12 students, and three chaperones.

The total cost of the trip is $2,100 per person, which includes airfare, hotel, most meals and insurance. A lot of fundraising is going on to lower the price.

Ms. Lanigan said, “Please spread the word to friends and family as well
