Northwest Christian students are on target to reach their 2016 goal of making 25,000 meals for Generation Alive’s “Something to Eat Campaign” raising over $6,200 and counting for the “Something to Eat” Initiative. This is the second largest meal campaign in the Spokane area for Generation Alive and is second only to Whitworth University.
Students from preschool through eighth grade have worked hard and had a lot of fun with fundraising events that included: making a donation to allow them to wear hats to school, purchasing concessions at the Lower Campus Basketball Night and collecting change in the school parking lot during their “Fill the Boot” campaign. Their three favorite events were opportunities to donate money in order to: 1) put a “Pie in the Face” of one of their beloved teachers or administrators, or 2) “Duct Tape a Teacher, and 3) classroom competition with “Boxes for Change.”
The Something to Eat Campaign is an initiative designed to provide and send low-cost nutritional meals to people that are suffering from starvation, as well as give youth a tangible opportunity to get outside of their world to help others in need.
The money raised during the many different fundraisers that Northwest Christian students participated in will purchase the food for the students to assemble into meal packets which will be donated to the 2nd Harvest Food Bank in Spokane. Food preparation will take place on Wednesday, March 2 at 8:30a.m. at the Lower Campus.
