As a final fundraiser, Helping Hands members organized a Dress Down Day that took place on Monday, May 8th. After paying $3, students were able to wear appropriate clothes of their choice. Thanks to everyone who was involved, participated, and donated, the water well money is finally completed. The money collected was also enough for an eye cataract surgery donation. Soon, those in need will have a clean source of water, and healthier eyesight. This is truly a grand and inspiring accomplishment!
