Environmental Science Club surpasses fundraising goal

by Jean Pabon, Staff Reporter

The Environmental Science Club, strives to donate money to Clearbrook hospitals, for patients with mental handicaps. They do so through a fundraiser known as Jelly Belly.

Money raised for the patients with Mental handicaps is used in programs and services.

According to Gloria Drake, Vice President of Communications and Event planning, Clearbrook is a leader in “creating innovative opportunities, services, and support for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities such as autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy and mental retardation.”

With an apron on, clearly stating the words Jelly Belly on them, members asked for donations during lunch periods. Once someone has donated, they reach inside a pouch on the apron and  give the donor a bag of jelly beans.

With all the donations they have received so far, they have raised $603.27.

“The Jelly Belly donations were a big hit,” Donna Caponigro, special education teacher, said, “We are getting close to last year’s donation of $550, I know we can beat that number.”

Ms Caponigro will be receiving another shipment of Jelly Belly Candy. She will be offering 25 bags in exchange for $5, 60 bags for $10, and 100 bags for a $15 donation.

For those wanting candy, Ms. Caponigro is normally in room 113 periods one, two, eight, and nine or in room 207 periods three and four.
