NHS Interact makes a child's dream come true

 

At the beginning of the school year, the Interact Club at Neshaminy High School was looking for a community service project. They found much more than that; they found Jayden.

Jayden is a 4-year-old with cerebral palsy from Glenolden, PA. He loves to sing, color and paint, and enjoys watching Paw Patrol and Barney. When Jayden grows up, he would like to be a singer. Jayden had been talking nonstop about meeting Mickey Mouse on a trip to Walt Disney World.

Working through the Sunshine Foundation, Interact members got busy finding ways to fund Jayden's dream, starting with the annual Neshaminy's Got Talent competition in December. With some generous help from Feasterville Rotary (which sponsors Interact Clubs), they eventually raised over $5,000, enough to send Jayden and his family on his 'Dream Come Trip' to Disney World.

On May 4, 2017, Jayden and his family visited Neshaminy High School to give Jayden the good news that his dream was about to come true. As he watched, a banner was unfurled from a second-story balcony revealing a picture of Mickey Mouse and the words 'You are going to Disney'. The smiles were nonstop as cameras rolled and Interact Club members celebrated with their new best friend and his family.
