Dozens of people at Sierra Vista Junior High School participated in Lee National Denim Day Thursday to raise money for breast cancer research.

During the annual event people can dress more casually in denim jeans in exchange for a donation.

The event was organized by the student group Sierra Vista’s Caring Spirit, also called the SiViCS Club.

“What we did doesn’t seem like a lot, but it means a lot to know that the kids at Sierra Vista care about supporting a cause and raising money to research breast cancer,” said Mackenzie Krestul, an eighth-grader and vice president of the SiViCS Club. “It’s a good cause to support and it really does affect us all.” 

The 60 members of the organization raised $1,500 this year and have raised $10,000 over the past 15 years of participation in the Denim Day event.

“SiViCS Club is Sierra Vista Junior High School’s community service club, and we try to do one positive activity in the city of Santa Clarita each month,” said Kerry Skoczylas, the club’s director. “Our clubis made up of great kids, seventh- and eighth graders, who want to do great things.

“They donate time each month helping to make our world a better place to live,” Skoczylas continued. “Our club motto is: Together we can, together we will.”
