W2C News Flash, Workshops, and Other Upcoming Community Events



W2C students are on a roll…literally!  Guadalupe Bueno announced that she made the HIGH Honor roll!  Guadalupe is a 7th grader at Jack Benny Middle School.  Great job Guadalupe, we’re all proud of you!




Initiated by W2C Parent Leader, Teresita Correa, W2C students will be collecting plastic bottle caps from now until the end of April.  Each bottle cap collected pays for 1-minute of dialysis.  At our kick-off on Saturday, the Washington/Carbajal family readily donated over 1500 plastic bottle caps!  That’s about 25 hours worth of dialysis for someone in need.  If you would like to participate, plastic bottle caps can be dropped off at Christ Episcopal Church, 410 Grand Ave, Waukegan on Saturdays from 9 to 12 or Monday thru Thursday between 10:30 am and 6 pm.


Feed My Starving Children – Each year W2C students spend time together to participate in a project that helps feed hungry children from around the world.  If you would like to join W2C our day of service is on Saturday, March 2nd from 2 to 4 pm.  Feed My Starving Children is located at 742 E Park Ave, Libertyville IL.



W2C held a workshop this past Saturday on money management.  Presented by Libertyville Bank & Trust our families were challenged to find ways to cut spending and save for college.  One student shared what he and his family decided to do.  “After the workshop, we got together as a family and decided that we would save money by not buying anymore bottled water.  We are a family of 7 and go through a lot of water.  Not only will we save money but we can also do something positive for the environment.”  Carlos Rico.  Please share your tips for saving $!
