Campus Middle School continues tradition of caring

Campus Middle School has a long tradition of supporting terminally ill children and their families. For the past 25 years, the CMS National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) has led a holiday season fundraiser for The Denver Hospice, raising nearly $200,000 during that time. This year, CMS students and families, staff and community members, raised $8,443 for The Denver Hospice in honor of Christopher's Angels, a group that supports the families of children with terminal illnesses.

"The money helps with things like mortgages, gas, car payments, bills and food to support families while they are supporting their children," said Meagen Fox, a seventh-grade teacher and NJHS sponsor.

She said the fundraising project is a good way for her students to develop empathy and focus on the needs of others.

"Our NJHS students volunteer around the community all year," Fox said, "but this fundraiser is something tangible as we watch the snowflakes, which represent the dollars donated, fill our classrooms and halls. It's great to see our students working so hard to help families who need support during an incredibly difficult time."
