Carrie Woodling, a senior in the Key Club at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School, made a suggestion in a Key Club meeting at school one day that the club should send gifts to the children who have to be in the hospital at Christmas time. The suggestion was in response to fellow senior and Key Club Division 14 Lt. Governor Derek Kelly’s request for service project ideas from the club. After that meeting, Carrie took the reins of that project, researched ideas, and found information on the Children’s Hospital website all about the Sugar Plum Shop; a place where parents of children in the hospital can select gifts for their children. Carrie made signs to put up around the Montgomery Catholic High School campus and collected a wide variety of gifts for boys and girls of all ages. She then enjoyed delivering them to the hospital in early December. Also, pictured are Catholic senior Ann Faulkner(left) and Derek Kelly (right).
