Grade 7 students from Mr. Tyne’s class at Columneetza took it upon themselves to successfully raise funds for the local food bank recently.
The group hosted a bake sale at their school Dec. 8, 2021 and raised $125, which they donated to the Salvation Army food bank.
“It made me feel like we helped quite a bit,” said student Mai-Lei Erlandson.
Bella Hilton said the students baked everything from cookies, to cupcakes to lemon squares and sold it over a two-day bake sale at their school.
The students said they hope to have another fundraiser sometime this year to help those in need.
