Staples’ Class of 1976 celebrates its 35th reunion this summer.
But they want to do more than meet old friends, reminisce about when the drinking age was 18, and listen to KC & the Sunshine Band.
They plan to give something back to the town they grew up in.
The idea is to collect a small amount — say, $10 — from each attendee. And from those who can’t make it back, but want to help. If half the class donates, they’ll raise $3,000.
Who will they give it to? They’re taking a poll.
They’ve got 10 very worthy nominees so far. Most are local organizations:
- Staples Tuition Grants
- Homes With Hope
- Project Return
- A Better Chance of Westport
- Near & Far Aid
- Save the Children
- Project Choice
- Westport Humane Society
- Scholarship America
- Hole in the Wall Gang
By June 1, they hope to settle on a “Charity of Choice” for the Class of ’76.
That’s the spirit!
