On February 23-24, middle school and high school students from all 3 of our campuses will gather together for our annual 30Hour Fast. Our goal is to raise $19,800 in an effort to provide needed essentials to refugees who have fled their homes. We are partnering with World Vision to Silence the Disaster by providing food, clean water, education, health assistance, shelter, emergency supplies, and safe places for children to play, learn, and begin to heal from the traumatic experiences that caused them to flee their homes. Approximately 647,000 Rohingya children, women and men have fled to Bangladesh escaping violence in Myanmar since August 25, 2017. Over half of the refugees are children, many of whom arrived without an adult to care for them. Will you partner with us to Silence this Disaster and give these children hope for a brighter future?
Register by February 12 to be guaranteed a t-shirt.
