Creek Cares was an organization that student council came up with to bring clubs together. Student council’s idea of Creek Cares was to help out others in our community.
This organization made over 250 goodie bags that contained items such as: soap, deodorant, toothpaste and more essentials.They delivered 30 bags to each feeder campus, and the rest to the communities around Caney Creek.
Junior Ivan Sanchez, StuCo President, said he enjoyed participating in Creek Cares.
“Being able to donate hygiene products to help support the ones in need felt fulfilling because I was able to make a difference,” Sanchez said.
Senior Christina Peña, Vice President of StuCo, said that she can go on and on about the subject.
“I feel like it’s important to give back to people in need because if just one thing can change one person’s day to a good one, it makes you feel kinda like a warm feeling and that’s something you can’t be given or bought,” Peña said. “Also it really brought our school together not only clubs, but our StuCo with Moorhead’s StuCo got together.”
Many organizations such as Caney Creek’s Health Occupations Students of America, also known as HOSA, donated shampoo and were involved in the packaging of the essentials.
“It was amazing seeing everyone give back to the community,” senior Rosy Solis, President of HOSA, said. “It shows how great we are as a school.”
StuCo said they were inspired by the fact that they feel like a family all together and wanted to recreate that moment to promote positivity in school.
“It was inspired by the feeling of community we felt after the homecoming parade,” Tracy Underwood, StuCo adviser, said. “Everyone, no matter what organization they were with, united together after the parade and it looked like a true panther family,” Underwood said.
