Fundraiser to Benefit Best Buddies
Students involved in Best Buddies develop activities to enhance the lives of fellow students with intellectual and development disabilities. Students with disabilities (buddies) are paired up with students without disabilities (peer buddies and associate buddies) and participate together in events at school and outside of school.
The Stevenson chapter of this organization is hosting a mobile app fundraiser on Monday, Nov. 23 from 5-7 p.m. Anyone placing a mobile order for pick-up at the Vernon Hills Chick-fil-A is asked to enter “BEST BUDDIES” in the special instructions area of their order to support this club.
