Happy helpers


Nearly 20 Pilgrim High School seniors from Alison Wallace’s Urban Sociology class recently visited 270 Squantum Drive, the home of Dan Cunningham, to celebrate the donation of $500 to Warwick’s, A Wish Come True. As part of the course, seniors focus on community service and often participate in food banks and fundraisers. In early December, students helped Cunningham set up a mini Christmas of 210 ceramic houses in his two-and-a-half car garage, which he has been showing to the public since 1989. He invited members of the community to stop by his home and witness the winter wonderland, as well as make monetary contributions. In total, he collected $1,000, $500 of which was donated to A Wish Come True, and the other half was given to the Ronald McDonald House. Both are non-profit organizations. The students re-visited Cunningham’s home to assist him with storing the display in his basement and hand over the check to A Wish Come True Founder and Executive Director, Rosemary L. Bowers.
