Reaching Out: CHS Student Group Offers Support to Hope Lodge

Members of CHS Cares, a student volunteer organization working within the school and community to create a caring environment, recently extended support to the Hope Lodge in Burlington.

The Hope Lodge, which is sponsored by the American Cancer Society, provides free temporary housing for patients while they undergo outpatient treatment at Fletcher Allen Health Care. Patients’ families are welcome, too, and the facility serves more than two thousand people each year.

On May 3, representatives of CHS Cares cooked dinner for patients and family staying at Hope Lodge.

This is yet another shining example of students all across our district actively volunteering and making positive contributions in our community.
