Deerfield High School Community Chest
Time & Location
About The Event
For over 50 years, Deerfield High School has held an annual three-week long charity drive in November, called School Chest, to raise money for a selected beneficiary. During these three weeks, the efforts of the student body, staff, and surrounding Deerfield community are synthesized with the mission of raising funds and awareness for the beneficiary. Numerous events and initiatives, such as a silent-auction benefit dinner, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, a spelling bee, a singing competition, and a 5k Run for Change, and daily food sales, are held as key means of fundraising during this three-week period. All School Chest events are entirely student-run. School Chest is truly magical--it unites the entire student body and community towards a common goal.
