Morley students show compassion.
Students at Morley Community School raised close to $4,000 in support for Haiti earthquake survivors. Their most recent fundraiser, part of the Help Haiti Heal campaign, a garage sale and carnival earned $1,500, adding to the previously raised $2,418, which was donated to the Red Cross earlier in the year. Funds from the most recent MCS event were donated to UNICEF and Partners in Health. Event planners, Jackie Brown, Gen Soler, MCS teachers along with the MCS high school Student Council and student volunteers began preparations for the fundraiser soon after the earthquake on Jan. 12. The Help Heal Haiti, a global awareness event, was initiated by the compassion of the students.
