Like Father Like Daughter: Inspirational Donation to RRH


“I pledge on my honor to uphold the objectives of Builder’s Club. To better my school, my community, my nation and myself. To aid those in need while enhancing leadership capabilities, and to encourage the fellowship of mankind.”

This is the motto of the Builders Club of Byron-Bergen Central Schools, and with a $500 donation to Rochester Regional Health’s Behavioral Health Treatment Center, that’s exactly what they did. This club, which is made up of 12 students ranging from 8th-10th grade, raised the donated funds through coin collections and basket raffles throughout the school year.

Not only did these inspiring young adults donate funds, they also impacted the treatment center in a fun and engaging way! The Builder’s Club created inspirational cards for patients to read during their treatment at Unity Hospital. Hannah Catalino, a current 10th grade student at Byron-Bergen, pushed hard for supporting Rochester Regional Health. Her father is a therapist who, on a daily basis, improves the lives of patient’s. Now, Hannah and the Builder’s Club have left a mark in their own way.

Thank you, Builder’s Club, for continuing to be an inspiration to our community. We look forward to seeing what you do next!

 

Background:

The Builder’s club is a youth organization sponsored by the Byron Kiwanis Club in the town of Byron, NY. The Builder’s Club consists of 12 students ranging from 8th-10th grade. The members of the Builder’s Club vote on which organizations they want to work with for the year and Rochester Regional Health was honored when they expressed their interest. The club voted unanimously on this donation.

Rochester Regional Health is not the extent of the Builder’s Club’s philanthropy. Not only have they given back to our community, but they have impacted those worldwide. The Builder’s Club have volunteered to help with the Miracle Mile for the Golisano Children’s Hospital, the Salvation Army, the Fall Festival at the Byron-Bergen Elementary School and even hurricane relief efforts for Puerto Rico.
