YUDA Bands Service Project Reaches Goal
The 9th Grade World Geography YUDA Bands Service Project that ran from Dec. 10-20 ended up selling 434 bracelets to help sponsor underprivileged students in impoverished countries to get a secondary education. The class surpassed their presale goal of 350 bracelets that they needed to be able to sponsor their selected students, which enabled them to help sponsor another student as well. Thanks to everyone from the school and community that bought these bracelets and thanks to our local businesses Cabin Coffee, Starboard Market, Culvers, Orange Leaf and Pizza Hut for supporting this cause. The collective efforts of the students, school, community, and businesses helped break the poverty cycle in these countries for what will hopefully be not just this generation but generations to come.
