Hinsdale - Hinsdale South High School Hornets for Wounded Warriors presented a donation check for $800 to Veterans of Foreign Wars Darien Memorial Post 2838, after raising the funds at a Hornet basketball game. 

At request of the students, the VFW post developed a list of five wounded veteran funds with a high percentage of donations spent on direct aid. 

The check was forwarded to the students’ choice, Disabled American Veterans Charitable Trust Mission, which applies 97% of funds to direct aid for physical and psychological rehabilitation of ill and wounded veterans.
