Goodfellows: Year after year, Creighton Prep club is regular on charity's donor list
Creighton Prep Science Club member Elijah Clark, 16, cleans and stacks aluminum cans and plastic bottles Monday at the school. The club has donated a portion of its recycling proceeds to The World-Herald's Goodfellows campaign every year since the early 1980s, giving a total of more than $1,225.

To our readers: Throughout the holiday season, we will highlight the big-hearted people who give to The World-Herald's Goodfellows charity in its annual holiday campaign — many of them year after year, many of them in memory of a loved one or to celebrate an accomplishment. Today's story, on the Creighton Prep Science Club, is the first in a series highlighting our “Goodfellows Angels.” If you know of a Goodfellows donor whom we should feature, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Charity begins at an almost-closet in the basement of Creighton Prep, a room stuffed with cans, paper, boxes, plastic bags and other assorted clutter, a deep laundry sink taking up one wall.
