Seventh Grade Raises Over $700 with Hoops for Holga

As part of their service learning in Religion class, through the Unbound program, the Seventh grade adopted Holga. Holga is a 10-year old girl living in Guatemala. Because of an illness, Holga spends her life in a wheelchair. She lives with her mom, dad, and 3 siblings in an adobe house with a dirt floor. She can’t go to school because of her illness, but she loves playing with dolls and talking with her friends.

To help raise money to support 10-year old Holga in Guatemala, the girls come up with fundraisers that they can do during the school day. Last year, the girls came up with a bucketball tournament and a hula hoop tournament. Villa families helped to fund a new wheelchair for Holga and a tin roof on her family’s home last year. This year, the Seventh grade hosted their second annual bucketball fundraiser called “Hoops for Holga,” and raised over $700 in three days!

Thank you to Mrs. Buck and the Seventh grade for their leadership in bringing together a community of support for Holga and her family. And congratulations to all the winners!
