Humanitarian Update

This has been quite an unusual period of time.  I extend a very grateful, and heartfelt, thank you to all who participated and shared supplies for the humanitarian project we had in February. The students were so very excited to work on it.  It was, I think, a profound experience for them to work together toward helping others. 

We ended up with 75+ hygiene kits
We were able to make 25+ blankets and had many other high priority necessities contributed

Just as we had scheduled and were planning our visit to the Lifting Hands International warehouse, it was canceled due to the quarantine.  We are looking forward to having a field trip is the near future when we are cleared to go.  We will share more photos at that time. Thank you for all you have done to help.
