Young Donors – Happy Hollow Elementary School

Happy Hollow Students – Toy & Book Drive for LUM

Two 4th grade students from Happy Hollow Elementary School (West Lafayette) delivered lots of toys, Legos & books to Lafayette Urban Ministry. Clark Benhart (age 10) & Cade Kitchel (age 10) coordinated a school-wide Toy & Book Drive for LUM. The project was a result of an initiative during “Genius Hour,” in which Mrs. Fernandez challenged the students to create something to improve the community or themselves. The toys, Legos and books are now being put to good use in the LUM After School Program — and some will be used at LUM Camp this summer. LUM is grateful to the students at Happy Hollow for their generous donation and to Clark, Cade & Mrs. Fernandez for their leadership with this project.

If you or your group, school, business or church would like to coordinate a “Drive” and collect needed items for the programs at Lafayette Urban Ministry, please check out our WISH-LIST of needed items online.
