Dimes for Disaster
On a recent Friday after school, Makenzie Fong dropped off nearly $350 in coins at U.S. Bank in Enumclaw. The fifth-grade student and her classmates at Sunrise Elementary School raised the money during a week-and-a-half fundraising effort for the Red Cross, where it will be earmarked for the Japanese relief effort. “I saw the devastation on TV and wanted to help,” Fong said. With help from her teacher Marsha Henderson and the OK from Principal Chris Beals, Fong and her classmates made posters and fliers that said, “every cent counts,” and drummed up support school-wide. The first day, the kids collected $128.
