Lincoln-Way Central Interact Club collects gloves for homeless
Wednesday, November 2, 2016

During the month of October, students at Lincoln-Way District 210 participated in many philanthropic opportunities to celebrate “Make a Difference Month.” Lincoln-Way Central Interact Club collected gloves for “Glovetober,” which were donated to Morning Star Mission in New Lenox. Morning Star Mission will provide these gloves to those in need during the holiday season.

President of the Interact Club Lane Kapsalis says, “It's always important to help others in need. Our club really wants to make a difference and it really shows, but we couldn't have done it without the help of the kids who attend Central. The students did a phenomenal job last year for Socktober, and again, this year for Glovetober. Thank you so much for helping out for a good cause.”

During lunch periods, Interact Club members collected gloves from fellow classmates for donations. English Department teachers also collected gloves within their classrooms.

In total, 312 pairs of gloves were donated.

“The Interact Club this year consists of 80 students and the number keeps growing,” says sponsor, Steve Proutsos. “Last year, we collected socks for Socktober, but the kids wanted to change it up a little…I am very proud of all of them. We have outstanding students in our district and it is shown through selfless acts like these.”
