Villa Madonna Students Donate $2K to Local Charities

Villa Madonna Academy High School sophomores donated $2,000 to local charities thanks to a partnership with Magnified Giving.

The students raised money through various activities including hosting a high school bake sale and raffle for prizes and services. Their money was combined with a grant from Magnified Giving, an organization that gives money to student groups for investing in the local community.

Through the program, the students researched non-profits and even listened to pitches from organizations about their work. One group – 4 Paws for Ability – brought Lucy the service dog into the classroom so that students could learn more about the agency.

Last week, the students were able to donate $2,000 to three local groups. The students donated $1,000 to 4 Paws for Ability, an organization that trains and places service dogs for children and veterans with disabilities; Elementz, an urban arts center for inner-city youth, received $500; and Childhood Food Solutions, an organization that provides summer sack lunches and other food services to inner-city children in Cincinnati, also received $500.
