Whitewater hospice work

For the fourth year the Whitewater High School baseball program and fellow students have decorated the Southwest Christian Care Facility and Hospice for Christmas.

On Saturday, November 3, over 70 students and family members spent their afternoon putting trees together, decorating them and hanging lights, wreaths and garland. The staff of the care facility was overwhelmed with the amount of help and how fast the decorations came together. Next week the baseball program will begin its Baseball Santa Program. This will be the fifth year that the baseball team has supported one or more local families to help them have a joyous Christmas.

Whitewater coach Frank Dixon states that “this effort is just one of the many ways that the Whitewater High students are involved in community service.” Last year the students of Whitewater High raised over $22,000 for the Pennies for Patients program to help in the research of Leukemia and Lymphoma. This figure put the school in sixth place in the nation for this special program.

The administration, faculty, staff, students, and parents are very proud of these students who worked hard in decorating the care facility. They make us “Proud to Be a Wildcat.”
