CCC Hosts Cappuccino Day

Cougar Community Commitment (CCC) hosted it’s quarterly Cappuccino Day Sept. 27 to raise money for former NW science teacher Debbie Mayer.

To prepare, students in CCC take time out of their day to serve the hot chocolate, cappuccinos, half-and-halfs, lemonade and cookies.

“We had to be at the school at 6 a.m. to start prepping for Cappuccino Day,” senior Grace Freeman said. “We also got out of every hour to help make and pass out the things people ordered.”

Once a quarter, CCC sponsors a Cappuccino Day to support a NW affiliate who needs money for a particular purpose, most commonly medical reasons. Mayer was paralyzed after a large stroke that occurred after she had surgery on her neck, according to CCC.

CCC raised $1,914, which will all go to Mayer.

“It was really amazing to see the class come together to support such an amazing cause,”  CCC president Taylor Bonsor, said. “It makes me so happy to know that Northwest is a family and we can support each other when we need help.”
