In November, Lending Hands Club participated in a project for Ferocious Fighters. Ferocious Fighters is a non-profit organization that prepares care packages for children with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) across the United States and abroad. November is recognized as CRPS Awareness Month. CRPS is a chronic pain condition that creates extreme nerve pain, skin sensitivity, swelling, temperature changes, and color changes in the affected area. Lending Hands Club made fleece scarves, inspirational cards, and orange awareness pins for the Ferocious Fighters to include in their care packages. The students had the opportunity to talk about how different their middle school lives would be with a chronic illness, and also spoke about empathetic expressions to use in similar situations.
