Each homeroom was challenged to collect a complete cleaning kit filled with items like liquid laundry detergent, clothespins, heavy-duty trash bags, and cleaning wipes; a package of diapers; and raise cash donations. Thanks in part to the donation of 36 buckets and lids from the Bellingham Home Depot, the Engineering Technology students won the challenge and will receive a prize for their efforts.
In total, the school raised close to $1,000 in cash donations to aid the recovery efforts in addition to the diapers and cleaning kits being shipped to the victims.
