Interact Club recently kicked off its 2018-2019 worldwide service project. This year, club members are collecting money donations to benefit The Water Project, Inc.  

“The Water Project, Inc. is a non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing reliable water projects to communities in South Africa who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation,” senior Interact Club president Jordan Alexander said. “For ten years, they have been helping communities gain access to clean, safe water by providing training, expertise and financial support for water project construction through their staff and implementing partners.”   

Students may donate to this cause by dropping their change into a water jug found in the nurse’s office, or near the cafeteria during lunch. People may also donate by visiting the Interact Twitter or Facebook page.   

“We chose this project because we wanted something that would change people’s lives forever,” Alexander said. “We want to dream big and see what type of impact the community of LCM can make in Africa. Any amount will make a difference.”   

The Water Project will send pictures of the people Interact has impacted, and maps of the village they have influenced. This allows donors to see the long-term impact of their giving.  

“We are so blessed to have the resources that we have that I feel it’s necessary to give back and share with those who are less fortunate,” Alexander said. “And it’s a good feeling to know that our club isn’t only impacting South East Texas, but a village that is half way across the world.”   

To encourage others to donate, Interact is doing a strong social media push within the school and district. Interact is currently taking donations and plans to through January.  

“People should donate to The Water Project because this goes so far beyond dropping a few dollars in a bucket,” he said. “This has an impact that we could not possibly understand. Collectively, we can change people’s future for the better.”
