Racine Lutheran High chooses Haiti over snacks

Organizers Zhane Pica, left, and Nikki Roeder

Racine Lutheran High School students recently gave up their after-lunch snack money to help the hungry in Haiti.

Sophomore Zhane Pica and senior Nikki Roeder helped organize the project. Donations were collected in a big jar at lunch, next to the snack bar (Do you really need that cookie when people are suffering?) and through the Wednesday chapel collection.

The students and staff donated $563 for aid to Haiti, distributed through Lutheran World Relief. The students also sold Haiti wrist bands which raised money for Red Cross efforts.

Principal Randy Baganz said, “Students need to know they can make a difference in our world. Sacrificing their own money to help earthquake victims in Haiti was a great way to make giving personal. Helping others is part of our Christian commitment."
