    Kirkwood High School Service Project Selected for CharacterPlus 2024 Champions of Character Recipient

    Students and staff members from the Kirkwood High School Innovation program are one of four recipients of the annual Cardinals Care Champions for Character Award. Champions for Character recognizes local schools for excellence in service learning. The St. Louis Cardinals have partnered with CharacterPlus on this initiative since 2004. For their service project, students and staff from the Innovation program conducted an annual Diaper Drive. Students prepared and decorated collection boxes and placed them around the KHS campus. Students went on the weekly school announcements soliciting donations and creating awareness of the event. After the drive, the Innovation team went to the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank to present the diaper donations and monetary collections to organization representatives. The group also spent time sorting and packing sizes and feminine products. Since 2019, their efforts have netted over 8,000 diapers collected and $4,320 in monetary funds. KHS did not hold the diaper drive in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
