A Note From A Helping Ninja

Tuesday September 5th

Hi, I am a Helping Ninja. I am 10 years old and in the 5th grade at College Wood Elementary. Today me and the other Helping Ninja’s drove to the “Midwest Food Bank.” (My friend’s mom, shes the parent Helping Ninja sponsor drove us. I didn’t actually drive.) We went there to give donations we collected to donate to Hurricane Harvey Victims. We collected the supplies and money in our neighborhood. We had a lemonade stand and sold lemonade, lolly pops, and taffy all for $1.00 each. We also asked for donations. A lot of people helped out, they donated money and gave donations. Suprisingly most people donated money instead of donating by buying lemonade. Even our bus driver stopped to buy some lemonade. After 3 days of hard work, we got a total of $79 and about $100 worth of supplies. Supplies include toothbrush, soap, toilet paper, small toys, cleaning supplies, etc. Midwest Food Bank takes these donations and drives it Hurricane Harvey Victims down in Texas. It takes $1000 to get the semi to Texas, and another $1000 to get back. Our money will go towards gas and other supplies needed. The last semi- truck took $13,000 worth of supplies. Another truck load is going tomorrow so we got there just in time! The nice lady at the Midwest Food Bank told us that every one dollar donated turns into an actual donation of four dollars! So just one dollar goes a long way. That means, that our donation of $79 is actually a $316. Please help the Helping Ninjas help the Midwest Food Bank and help the Hurricane Harvey Victims.
