The Upper School Ethical Leadership and Service Activity is sponsoring two donation drives underway. The first is for girls lacrosse gear that will be brought to Guatemala City as part of the Maya Lacrosse program, which organizes lacrosse programs for girls in six cities around Guatemala.
This drive is organized by Maddie Berrang ’09, who has been a regular in Guatemala since she traveled there for the first time with Safe Passage while in the Upper School. A lacrosse player at Waynflete, Maddie is now reaching out to the Upper School community to help her empower Guatemalan girls and share her love for the game. The Maya program is in need of balls, sneakers, cleats, sticks, goalie gear, and anything lacrosse, even mouth guards. Donations should be brought to Cathie Connors’s office in Emery.
The second drive is in support of the efforts of Doctors Without Borders to combat the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. There is a donation box in the library and a bake-sale during lunch on Friday in the atrium (11:00 – 12:00). All proceeds will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
