Monique Juengel and Jim Quigley from the Barrington Breakfast Rotary introduced Jeff Degner of Healing the Children to the Barrington High School Interact Club.


Jeff explained Healing the Children's purpose and his role as part of the organization. Having helped children from around the world, mostly Latin America, receive medical treatments in the United States that they can not get in their own countries.

In a few weeks, three children will be arriving from El Salvador to receive heart surgery at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital. All three are being hosted by a local Barrington family. Jim Quigley suggested the Interact Club act as ambassadors to these children to make their trip here more meaningful.

Senior Monica Contractor volunteered to coordinate their efforts and over half the club signed up to participate.
