Students Raise Money to Build School in Haiti

Updated 1/21/2019 7:14 AM

Last Tuesday the Sullivan Ambassadors at Anne Sullivan School kicked off the District 23 Winter Fundraiser with an assembly explaining their global goal of building a school and a local goal of sending their peers in District 23 to summer camp. The students watched a video produced by the WAVES organization on their trip last month to Haiti showing the children that will benefit from the district's fundraising efforts.

The plan is to first raise $500 for the camp scholarship fund that was started in 2010 as a memorial to a former student who passed away from cancer. Then, they hope to raise $7,375 for the children in Haiti. After one week, they have raised just over $2,000.


There is a dance-a-thon on Jan. 23rd and a Dining Out event at Jimmy John's (1299 N. Rand Road in Arlington Heights) to further help with the fundraising efforts.
