WHITE MARSH — September was Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and a local school collected items to help children and families fighting the pernicious disease.
Rosedale Baptist School was able to raise awareness for and impact the lives of those with childhood cancer with their donation drive for the Casey Cares Foundation. The foundation, which hosts local events and fundraisers throughout the year, is an organization that has a program to give pizza and movie nights to critically ill children and their families.
Rosedale Baptist School collected more than 1,000 items to donate, including gift certificates for pizza delivery, snacks, candy, gift cards to Redbox or Netflix and pajamas.
The class who gathered the most donations was Mrs. Stidham’s second grade class. They got the privilege of delivering all the donations to the Casey Cares Foundation. Because of the community’s generosity, Rosedale Baptist School will be able to add a little joy to those families affected by childhood cancer.
