Washington, CT - The Devereux Glenholme students of Sections 6 and 7 joined the efforts of thousands across the nation as they raised money for children affected by HIV and AIDS around the world with Hoops of Hope, the world’s largest free-throw marathon.  The students’ fundraising efforts at Glenholme began in mid-November with a direct-solicitation endeavor by students to families, friends and faculty which culminated on December 3rd in the school’s gymnasium with a free-throw marathon raising nearly $1,600 for an exceptional cause.

The students demonstrated a sense of pride and accomplishment as the results of this engaging fundraising effort concluded successfully. The funds raised by Glenholme stduent for Hoops of Hope will be used for constructing a medical clinic in Chilala, Zambia; provide 450 bicycles and 750 mosquito nets to AIDS caregivers in Sinazongwe, Sambia; build dormitories for the Jonathan Sim Legacy School in Twachiyanda, Zambia; and 10 care centers in Swaziland.

Glenholme has traditionally experienced 100% student-participation in volunteer efforts such as fundraising for Hoops of Hope. Volunteering not only helps others, it improves self-satisfaction and self-esteem, leadership skills, social skills, the ability to multi-task and much more. The student’s efforts are well on their way to exceeding the fundraising success of prior years.
