When it came time to pick an eighth-grade project, Canyon Creek Middle Schoolers Eli Crabtree and Tanner Howington wanted to do something to make a difference.“It seemed like most everyone was doing easy stuff, and we wanted to do something unique and help people who really needed it,” Howington said.
The two, who are now ninth-graders at Washougal High School, decided to raise money for the American Legion Cape Horn Post 122 holiday food basket program.
Crabtree’s dad, Vince, a Navy veteran, is the finance officer for Post 122.
“They really needed funds for the food basket program,” Crabtree said. “So we decided to ask businesses for donations and have a raffle.”
