Congratulations to Panther Creek High School Key Club, our featured club for the month of January!
During the holidays, Panther Creek High School Key Club, located in Cary, NC, participated in an event called Caroling for a Cause. The event is an ongoing project that was started 6 years ago in Cary by UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to raise money for cancer research. Key Club members joined younger students in a local neighborhood to sing holiday songs on doorsteps up and down the streets, as well as ask for donations for the Lineberger Cancer Center. The entire Caroling for a Cause project has raised over $52,000 since it began. After several hours of singing, Panther Creek Key Club members ventured to a volunteer's house to enjoy some hot cocoa, desserts, and warmer temperatures inside. As you can see in the picture above, the club members had a wonderful time singing to raise funds. A student from Panther Creek shared that, "One lady told me she was grateful we were raising money for this cause because her husband had died of cancer the previous year. It was a heartwarming opportunity to contribute to the community, and I would definitely do it again next year." The afternoon was a success for Panther Creek and for the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center!
