Gonzaga College High School Chapter

Gonzaga College High School Chapter

The Gonzaga College High School Chapter of Medical Missionaries was the first Chapter, formed in 2009. The Chapter has raised funds for Medical Missionaries on several occasions, holding bake sales and car washes and taking collections on special days at the school.



Buffalo Soldiers help Gonzaga students unload hygiene packages

The Gonzaga Chapter responded quickly to the earthquake in Haiti (January 12, 2010), collecting more than $1,000 in donations from students and faculty for earthquake relief. The students also held a drive to collect packets of soap, washcloths, toothpaste, and toothbrushes ("hygiene packets").  In two weeks, they collected more than 3,000 packets, filling 100 plastic bags. The bags were brought to Medical Missionaries' warehouse in Bristow, VA, on March 20 and uloaded with the help of the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club. (See the story of that cooperative work.).  The hygiene resources became an important part of a hygiene program that Medical Missionaries instituted in Thomassique, Haiti.



Gonzaga students hold car wash

One of the first things the Gonzaga Chapter did was to hold a car wash in the summer of 2009, raising more than $800.  This was also a great way for the members of the newly-formed Chapter to work together to accomplish a common goal.  Early in the 2009-2010 school year, the Chapter held a bake sale and took up collections to help Medical Missionaries care for the severely malnourished children in Thomassique.
