We Walk For Water

The Leadership Class has also begun a We Walk For Water campaign.

How full can we get this water jug?

 

 

Until May 10 we will be continuing our coin drive for WE walk for water. We have a big water jug in the office with the goal of filling it with coins by May 10. Every $25 gives clean water for life in communities in developing countries.

If you have some coins that are piling up, please help to support the Walk For Water campaign.

On May 10 we will be doing a water walk at school to cap off the event and raise awareness to the issue.
