Copper Ridge School’s NJHS donates to Child Crisis Arizona


Copper Ridge School’s eighth-grade NJHS members delivered more than $1,300 in donations to Child Crisis Arizona on Nov. 14.

According to a press release, students under the guidance of Lynda Boepple, benefited families and children in challenging situations. The students aimed to provide Child Crisis Arizona’s struggling families with the “gift of choice for the holidays.”

They conducted a school-wide drive to collect gift cards for grocery stores, clothing stores, and entertainment options so recipients could select and purchase the food, clothing, and “experiences that might make the season brighter,” the release noted.

“It made me happy to help the children out and to see their smiling faces. I love that we were able to make a difference,” Brienne Hade said in a prepared statement.

The students toured the facility and delivered the donations in person, added the release.
