Kira’s Closet was started in Odessa, Washington when the school librarian’s daughter, Kira, passed away suddenly from a brain tumor. The closet distributes clothing and other much-needed items to children in the area. Team Fleece wants to purchase low-cost fleece to make blankets and donate them to Kira’s Closet.
Sandpoint’s Winter Carnival is an opportunity for Team Sandpoint Interact to sell hot cocoa and snacks, raising money to purchase basic school supplies for students in Ecuador. The event is well-known and attracts both local community members and tourists. They plan to use the funds to help offset the cost of purchasing the beverage and snacks.
Central Valley High School’s Technology Student Association is holding a stuffed animal drive at their home basketball games, asking attendees to toss their animals into containers on the court during half-time. The collected toys will be donated to the Christmas Bureau, with the intent of bringing joy during the holiday season to those in the community who are less fortunate.
Yesenia Arevalo wants to heighten appreciation for diversity in her community in Centralia, Washington. A Cultural Heritage Fair at the high school is one opportunity to do so. Past fairs were put on without any money and all volunteers, so the hundred dollar project may provide the resources needed to make it a success this year.
