Program Overview

The Scots Angel program at David Douglas High School raises money for kids and families in Medical Crisis. The program has raised over $75,000 in the past 12 years with the fundraising efforts of the DDHS student body and the entire David Douglas Community. The program also partners up with businesses like DHL Global Forwarding to help support our angel and their family.

To choose an Angel, program organizers begin by reaching out district administrators to see if there is a child at their school that may be going through a medical condition and could use some financial assistance. Then they meet with the family to determine if Scots Angel can help them.

Quite a variety of fundraising is done to raise money for the program. A few examples are

  • A miracle minute at the DDHS winter assembly
  • DDHS Student Council takes photos with Santa
  • Link Crew Classes sell candy canes
  • National Honor Society adopts the family with their giving tree
  • Student Council receives donations for our final Raffle.
  • School penny drives

100% of the proceeds raised go directly to the families involved.
