The Source’s 16th Night of Hope Fundraiser “Zoomed” its way to Success
When the members of the Charter High School National Honor Society were preparing for their Senior Service Project, they decided they wanted to help the homeless members of Indian River County. Through thorough research, they decided on The Source, for the poor and homeless located in Vero Beach, as the local non-profit they would raise money to help.
Nearly 65 members embarked on a variety of ways they would raise funds including monetary, clothing and hygiene collections as well as a Valentine’s Day Bake Sale and a Raffle with gifts solicited from area businesses by the students. They also created flyers and social media content.
Chaired by the National Honor Society President, Senior Charlotte Nafe, and overseen by the Society’s Advisor, Nicole Moreaux, the members of the society seized the opportunity to experience leadership opportunities in reaching their goal. In the end, they raised a total of $920.00 which was presented in a check to The Source’s Executive Director Anthony Zorbaugh at the school’s Charter Hall in late March.
Zorbaugh, with gratitude, shared a number of the program initiatives that The Source had instituted for the homeless population and offered the students the opportunity to dedicate their large contribution to one of the programs of their choice. To that end, the students have decided that their donation would go to The Dignity Bus Program, their Mobile Overnight Shelter for the poor and homeless in Indian River County.
