Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic - International Humanitarian Aid

The Problem

Los Patriotas, El Club de Español, is a community service club. In short, the students of Sullivan East High School's Spanish Club, Bluff City, Tennessee, discuss and vote on projects they want to support during the school year. The members have decided that for the Fall of the 2007/2008 school year they would like to adopt a community in the Dominican Republic, in particular, the community of Puerto Plata. (The Spring community service project will be our 2nd Annual Food Drive.) In addition to the Spanish Club, numerous students and clubs expressed interest in joining the effort to raise needed items for Puerto Plata. Those clubs include Health Ocupations Students of America (HOSA), Student Council, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Key Club, and Future Farmers of America (FFA). Brittany C. a member of of my Spanish III class and an active member of the Spanish Club submitted a proposal for a $500 GameStop Youth Grant with the DoSomething Organization. The proposal was to include twenty cases of lollipops with all of the clothes we have collected so that she could share a little bit of herself with the children of Puerto Plata. On December 4th, a DoSomething representative, Ms. Jordyn Wells, gave Brittany a call informing her that she had been awarded to the grant. AWESOME job Brittany!
