Yesterday marked the first day of a bake sale for the Washington County Family Promise, an organization built around helping homeless families who have children.
Sophomore President Lauren Lee and many other Student Council members, including volunteers, hope to raise $500-$600 in funds this holiday season.
The bake sale will last up to 2-3 days from 7:40.- 8 a.m. and during Advisory, 9:50 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. They will be selling hot chocolate, Christmas cookies, and macaroons; a bag of macaroons for $3, two different macaroons and a truffle, a box of macaroons for $5, four macaroons and a truffle, a bag of cookies for $1, a bag of puzzles $3 for two, and the frosted Christmas sugar cookies $1 apiece.
“It feels really good…” Lee said,”… especially when you know you’re helping starving families. It makes society a better place, especially in a tight-knit community. It feels really good during this holiday season.”
