Carroll Medical Academy (CMA) students spent their holiday spreading goodwill in three different ways. CMA’s Diaper Drive, which was started by CSHS student Nikhil Ravi in his freshman year, brought in approximately 7,000 individual items for preemies at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Over the past four years, the drive has raised approximately 20,000 items. CMA Student Board Members Nikhil Ravi, Christie Ballew and Tiger Yang dropped off the diapers during their holiday break.
Additionally, CMA’s freshman and sophomore class adopted three angels from GRACE. They raised several hundred dollars and purchased Christmas gifts for the kids of families in need.
Continuing on with the spirit of giving, CMA’s Student Board organized a cookie drive, baking more than 200 cookies for each class to decorate. The cookies were then hand-delivered by the CMA Student Council to the GRACE Christmas Cottage, a program that provides families with Christmas gifts for their family at no cost to them.
