Malden High School Students Step Up for Housing Families Michaela D'Onofrio and Alyssa Figueiredo. Michaela D'Onofrio and Alyssa Figueiredo have recently been accepted into the National Honor Society at Malden High School. As you may know, the National Honor Society is a club where students come together to make a change in their community. As members of the National Honor Society, they were asked to come up with a project that could impact the com- munity and that they could connect with. They chose to put a kick ball game together in the gym of Malden high school with students against teachers. The event will be held on May 2, 2013. Everyone who attends will be asked to bring canned goods and/ or money to participate. All of the pro- ceeds and donations from this event will go to Housing Fami- lies in Malden. Housing Families is an organization where homeless families are given a home. These families are provided with affordable housing. Michaela and Alyssa decided to target the children living there by inviting them to the event. The goal is to give them a fun day that will take their minds off of all of the trouble that they have been through. The children will be able to enjoy the crafts that will be provided. These children have been abused and some have no parents, so a day away from it all could really ben- efit them. In order to make this day a success they will need many people to join. You can help by getting people interested in coming to the game. The more people who attend, the more donations they will receive, to ensure that these children maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle. You can assist in achieving this goal by reaching out to members of the Malden community, for example by email or any other method of communication. They need a large quantity of donations, so spread the word in your ward or even donate items yourselves. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. They hope that you will take their project into consideration; any type of assistance you could give will be greatly appreciated and would surely make a difference in the lives of these children in the community. Donations can be sent to Housing Families Inc., 354 Cross Street in Malden, MA 02148.
