“We sold out of uniform passes at Oldenburg and collected the money to be sent straight to the Smile Train. We raised almost $800 altogether, which covers surgery for three babies with money left over!
“I personally felt so happy, being a cleft lip baby myself, knowing that we could change their lives through this surgery. It makes me feel incredibly lucky to live where I do around amazing people.” For more information, persons can check out smiletrain.org.
Senior Tessa Larimer chaired the Christian Appalachian Project. It “involved the whole school. Each grade brought in a different type of item (hygiene products, towels and wash cloths, school supplies and socks) and the class that collected the most items per capita won an out of uniform day,” she says.
The donations were sent to Hagerhill, Ky. “I have worked with CAP before and working with them again makes me feel happy to know I can continue to help this organization.”
