SMHS students collect donations from their peers for the Day of Hope fundraiser.

Wednesday, August 23rd, was the tenth annual fundraiser promoting awareness that benefits Marian cancer care patients.

This year, ASB/Student Council students help raise nearly $300 for the 10th Annual Day of Hope Event.

Ninth grader Judith Velasco said, “a lot of people don’t donate, so I might as well be one of the people who does.”  Senior Aida Perez added, “it’s just something that I usually do [donate to charities].”

Participant Adriana Salvador stated, “I felt good becaue it went for a good contribution to something positive in the future, and I felt like I helped someone and hopefully made a positive impact.”
