Amanda Maier '19 is the WCS Ambassador for HIS House, a local organization that provides residential care for at-risk children in a campus home-like setting and foster homes in the community. In this capacity, she has raised nearly $900 to benefit the children helped by this organization. She has used the funds to purchase gifts for 21 children during the Holiday season. In addition, she hosted a Halloween party for the children where they enjoyed candy, pizza, drinks and a movie. She's grateful to her fellow WCS friends and families who have generously donated to this cause and made these events possible.
Amanda became involved with the organization last summer when she volunteered her time by reading to the children, doing arts and crafts and playing with them. She was touched by many of the children in state custody who live there and vowed to do more for them. Maier is planning to join with local businesses to hold more fundraising events.
