CARE Fundraiser

This year’s fundraiser sponsored by CARE is for donations for Rusinga Island school in Kenya. The McNulty family founded a primary school on Rusinga Island, Kenya, where Dr. McNulty, UMN Professor, works as a paleontologist. Rusinga Island is located in Lake Victoria, Africa’s great lake, which is just smaller than Lake Superior. Most students at the school are orphans, and their two free meals there a day are often their only food. The school has been incredibly successful and has grown to serve over 160 students. Unfortunately, the building doesn’t have enough space for everyone, and flooding in the area prompted them to seek another location where they can build a school to fit the community’s needs. They have already bought the land and are now seeking donations to construct the building. We hope you will consider donating to this cause.

Bring donations this week to your first hour teacher. Thank you!
