Washington High holds typhoon fundraiser
Submitted By Kristin Hishinuma
Washington High School responded to the recent tragedy in the Philippines by holding a fundraiser. Students, teachers, and administrators held a carwash fundraiser to help raise money for Typhoon Haiyan relief. The last-minute carwash was organized and within 3 hours, over 60 students volunteered to help. Approximately $1,000 was raised at the carwash and an additional $1,000 was raised from individual donations.
Alameda county Supervisor Scott Haggerty visited Washington High School on November 20 to accept the check and insure that all proceeds raised go directly to the Philippines. The event was a great success and the community came together to show its support for a great cause.
If you missed the carwash, but would like to donate to the typhoon relief, organization like UNICEF, CARE, the International Rescue Committee, and Save the Children all have relief funds that are accessible online or by phone.
