French Club raises $429 for Hurricane Victims
As their first club project of the year, French Club decided to do a service project to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina. It was decided that an early Mardi Gras party would be a fun way to earn money charity and it would also give French Club students an opportunity to show their fellow students a good time. A small group of dedicated students managed to bring in enough food to invite the entire school. They decorated the cafeteria in traditional Mardi Gras style and served food and drinks to everyone who came by. Students were asked to donate a minimum of $3 to Hurricane Relief efforts, but many generous students donated even more. A total of $429.17, which was sent to the Red Cross.
