The St. Joseph High School Interact Club, a service organization with the Conway Rotary Club, assembled Easter baskets for residents of Conway's Haven House on March 28th.
Established in 1986 by Mary Aleese Schreiber, HAVEN (Help for Abuse Victims in Emergency Need) House is a residential group home for adolescent females who have come into foster care at no fault of their own.
There are currently 12 young girls residing at Haven ranging from 11 to 17 years of age.
Each girl was given a basket containing lotion, face masks, nail polish, hair accessories, toiletries, and other items. They were collected voluntarily from Interact Club members.
"This was kids helping kids," Haven House Director Jones said. "Whenever students get together and help other girls of their same age, they're not only showing other kids that somebody cares about them that doesn't know them. They're also demonstrating compassion."
