‘The Giving Tree’ grows in Washougal
Cape Horn-Skye fourth-graders raise money for those in need
Tuesday, December 25, 2012
"It is better to give than receive," is a common phrase. But what does it really mean?
Cape Horn-Skye Elementary School fourth-graders found out when they participated in "The Giving Tree Project," which allowed them to help the less fortunate at Open House Ministries in Vancouver.
The students made crafts and ornaments in class.
Then, they held a craft fair at the school holiday concert where parents "purchased" their creations by donating food and clothing for people in need, instead of paying with money. Their efforts netted more than 850 items.
