Students chip in for hurricane relief

Lititz Christian School kicked off it’s Hurricane Relief Fund this week. After watching news of the devastation from Harvey and Irma, Grace Reedy, a seventh-grade student, expressed that she wanted to help those affected by the hurricane.

A bake sale was the initial strategy to raise funds. Parents volunteered to send baked goods which were purchased throughout the week. As the momentum grew, Lititz Christian decided to include all students.

The Early Learning Center began collecting coins. The younger children enjoyed putting coins in the coin collector each morning, knowing that the money would go to help the hurricane victims.

As Lititz Christian prepares for it’s Homecoming and Family Day this Friday, Sept. 22, officials wanted to remember the families who have been impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. All proceeds from the chicken barbecue on Friday night will benefit the Hurricane Relief Fund.

HOMECOMING CELEBRATION

The Lititz community is encouraged to support Lititz Christian’s Homecoming and Family Day from 3:30 to 9:30 on Friday, on campus, at 501 W. Lincoln Ave.

The school has partnered with Southwest Florida Christian Academy, located in Ft. Myers, Fla. The academy suffered thousands of dollars of damage to their fine arts department in instrument loss. They also lost many computers and projectors as well as athletic equipment.

Lititz Christian is excited for the opportunity to partner with Southwest Florida Christian Academy who, like Lititz Christian, is committed to develop Godly community leaders. They want to support them as they rebuild their community.
