Students in Grants Pass raised almost $1,200 to help orphans in Africa through Hope for Humanity. Because of AIDS, nearly 1.2 million African children are orphaned. During the week, these children come to special centers for a warm meal and help with schoolwork. On weekends, when the centers are closed, the children often have nothing to eat.
The Grants Pass students raised money by selling pizza, lemonade and stuffed animals. They also held a car wash and asked church members to help during offering time.
