The students of Kirkland Adventist Elementary School and Puget Sound Adventist Academy came together to raise money for the Adventist Development and Relief Agency’s (ADRA) Food Security Project. By digging into his or her own pockets every elementary student donated a minimum of one dollar and generous academy students each donated up to $20. Money from the Christmas program offering was added to the total.
The result surpassed everyone’s expectations. In a month’s time, giving exceeded $1,000. After applying the 7-1 matching gift for every dollar given, $7,000 was actually raised for ADRA. •
