Pancake breakfast kicks off charity week

Student Association’s Charity Week brings fundraisers to earn money for the Gilda’s Club charity in Detroit.

Charity Week as a whole includes many entertaining, but also crucial funding activities. One of the three committee chairs, Viviana Cilano ’26 said there is not one specific activity during the week and that made her want to be a chair even more.

“I wanted to show responsibility and I thought that my organization skills could plan out the week very well,” Cilano said.

Not just South is participating in Charity Week festivities, but also North. One of the other Charity Week committee chairs, Delaney Meyers ’26 said the food trucks at the North versus South girls soccer game on Friday will hopefully bring more spotlight to Charity Week.

“We were just trying to get more people to go by having them at the same spot so North families and South families all go into one place,” Meyers said. “If it’s a OneGP thing, I think more people will be involved in having things during the game.”

The can drive for Charity Week is a new thing this year that will be running from Apr. 21-27. Cilano said there are bins all around the school in which students can donate reusable cans.

“So I think we just thought the kid drive was very easy,” Cilano said. “It’s easy, it’s simple and that’s what high schoolers want.”

One of the many traditions of Charity Week is the pancake breakfast to kick off the week on Monday before school. Cilano said one of the main reasons the Student Association does it is to raise money for Gilda’s Club, a support program for people living with cancer.

“We want to get students to come to (pancake breakfast) and support the school and Charity Week as a whole and just to get like the students in one room, and we just thought that pancakes would have been like a good thing to draw students in,” Cilano said.
