RIVALS CARROLL, CJ JOIN FORCES TO HELP OTHERS
HIGH SCHOOLS CHOOSE WAGMOR SERVICE DOGS FOR $1,000 UNITY AWARD
DAYTON, Ohio - Traditional Catholic school cross-town rivals Carroll and Chaminade Julienne High Schools joined forces to help others in the Community Blood Center/Universal 1 Credit Union “Unity in the Community” campaign.
They teamed up to donate $1,000 to Wagmor Service Dogs with the Unity Award presentation at their Jan. 11 Carroll-CJ basketball game.
“Unity in the Community” is a partnership between CBC, Universal 1 Credit Union and a select group of rival high schools in the region. Carroll and CJ first joined the Unity Campaign in 2017. The rival high schools host CBC blood drives then alternate choosing a charity for the annual Unity Award.
Carroll and CJ took part in the 2018 Unity in Community campaign by hosting campus blood drives at CJ on Feb. 23 and Carroll on March 16. They totaled 181 donors, including 91 first-time donors and 151 donations. The students earned more than 181 hours of community service.
As host of the 2019 rival basketball game, Carroll chose this year’s Unity Award recipient. Carroll named Wagmor Service Dogs to receive the $1,000 award sponsored by Universal 1. Wagmor Service Dogs hopes to help people who need a loving companion with a soft touch to change their lives. Wagmor Service Dogs can help people with disabilities gain confidence and improve their independence.
