Kids Care Club H2O for Life

Published on

The fifth grade Kids Care Club has developed a personal connection by adopting a school in Haiti: Dumarsais estime de Port au Ceil. Through project Operation Water Well, Sope Creek will be able to bring running water to this school. The water crisis in Haiti was worsened by the recent earthquake and Sope Creek students want to help.

Sope Creek Elementary is partnering with H2O for Life (www.h2oforlifeschools.org) to help make this possible. Every penny raised by our students will be matched by Save the Children and 100% of the money we collect will go directly to digging a well at our adopted school.

The Kids Care Club will be collecting donations on March 3, 4, & 5. Parents can make tax-deductible donations by writing a check directly to H2O for Life Schools, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
