Roxhill Girls have a Bake Sale
The Roxhill girls had a bake sale last Friday. As the SCORES staff members arrived at the elementary school, we were surprised to see so many signs the girls had made around the school promoting the event.
Then as the staff entered the outside play area where the sale was taking place and we were shocked to see so many kids in line to purchase the baked goods! It was great. There were at least two dozen fellow students in line to get the donuts, cookies, cake and other sweets the kids had made and received as donations.
This may not be the healthy eating habits SCORES usually tries to advance, but it's in the name of charity. So, we can't help but support it.
The girls all voted to take the proceeds from the bake sale and purchase as many non-perishable food items as they can afford. Then they will donate the items to the Northwest Harvest, a Seattle non-profit.
