Jennifer Bering a Senior here at Venture School created her own way to help our community in need.

Her fundraiser is called Your Change Can Change A Life


"Throughout this past month while watching all of the terrible news about families losing everything they owned in the horrific fires, I felt the need to help our community in anyway I could. I talked with friends and family about what I could realistically do and really the only option was to volunteer. I realized on my own I couldn’t do much, but with the help of the students and faculty at Venture, the impact could be much greater than I had hoped for.


"With the help of Venture, I want to help a family get back on their feet. I thought if students volunteered to bring in change from home it could add up to potentially have a huge impact on a family’s life.


"Grateful Gatherings is a charity where you get assigned a family to help them furnish their home. The family is donated a house but still need help to furnish the inside. That’s where we come in. We would furnish their house to the best of our ability to make them feel at home.


"A few years ago I helped family friends with this same charity. We took all of the furniture, appliances, etc. that were collected and set-up their home while they were at lunch. The look on their faces when they opened the door was something I’ll never forget. I want to be able to do the same for another family.


"I have provided each teacher at Venture, as well as, the front lobby with collection jars.  You’ll have plenty of time to drop your change in them as I will not be picking them up until December 19th. 

"Thank you for your generosity."
