Heroic Acts: Junior Purple Society

At Presenta Plaque, we are constantly hearing of the wonderful heroes in our community, especially through our Presenta Plaque to Your Hero campaign. With so many stories to tell, we decided to begin a new monthly series on our blog and share these amazing heroes and their touching stories.

For our first story in the series, we chose to highlight the Junior Purple Society. As you’ll see when you watch the video, this is a school sanctioned, student run club for students grade 1 through college. The Junior Purple Society club involves students in providing local resources, hope, and inspiration to childhood cancer patients and their families. While engaged in community service, the students learn valuable lessons in humanity, compassion, and leadership. The Junior Purple Society Clubs visit local hospitals, deliver food to families in active treatment, deliver Nitalia’s Blankets to children in the hospital, visit children in treatment, plan and execute awareness campaigns, and many other activities.

For more information about this great club, visit their website  and to get involved with their September walk, click here.

Thanks Junior Purple Society for all you do!
