‘Exposure’ efforts benefit the whole community
McDowell High School’s Exposure group members are using their hands to create goodwill. The group is made up of students who work to promote awareness of social issues and encourage tolerance and diversity. During the year Exposure raised funds to benefit victims of domestic violence, packed food at the local food bank and supported fellow students at the E.F. Smith Quality of Life Learning Center, among other activities. Most recently they sold paper handprints for $1 as part of a donor display on the school’s wall. All proceeds from the display went to More Caps and Gowns, an initiative to keep middle school students in school by providing them with mentors. More than $700 was raised for the cause.
