LAHS student receives 49ers community award
Original post made by extra!credit on Jan 13, 2010
Last year in her English class, Mirbach was given an open-ended writing assignment. With the help of her father, she rented a list of 5,000 names and distributed a direct mail for InnVision.
"It started out as just a school project," she says, but as of this fall she has raised $20,000 for the organization, which provides shelter and services to homeless and at-risk families in the Bay Area.
As part of the 49ers honor she attended a luncheon and attended their Thanksgiving day game, where she was recognized at half-time out on the field.
"Now that I see that I can actually make a difference and actually achieve something it makes it really rewarding." She says of the award.
