San Luis Obispo
Two fifth-grade classes from Teach Elementary School in San Luis Obispo recently worked together to help classmate Max Collins, who has a rare bone marrow disease.
Max and his family receive assistance from Jack’s Helping Hand, an organization that helps children with cancer and special needs.
The students hosted what they called a “mini-mall,” where they sold handmade items to classmates as gifts for family and friends during the holidays.
The students raised more than $1,500 for Jack’s Helping Hand to help children like Max, and their other friends who may need support.
Massage Envy – Arroyo Grande Spa recently announced that it has raised $1,777 for the Arthritis Foundation during the fifth annual Healing Hands for Arthritis event. Joining 1,100 spas in the Massage Envy franchise nationwide, the Arroyo Grande location claimed the regional trophy for the largest amount of contributions received through donations of $10 for every one-hour massage or facial performed.
“I am very grateful for our awesome team and for the wonderful guests who visited the spa and contributed to this worthy cause,” said Adele Onaga, the spa’s business manager.
