CPC LEAD Students Stand With Puerto Rico
Students from the CPC LEAD after-school program at the High School for Dual Language and Asian Studies held a bake sale to raise funds for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. The bake sale was organized by the WE Schools Club, a club that centers around service learning and the Red Cross Club.
Prior to the event, students spent time learning about the the complex political, infrastructural, and financial issues that have contributed to the present situation where half of the island’s residents remain without power. Students made treats such as brownies, red velvet cookies, and vanilla cupcakes. Through their persistence and dedication we were able to raise over $350 for relief efforts.
