Students in River's Edge High School's Creations for a Cause class were tasked with answering the question, "How can we create artistic products to support our community?" Their solution was simple, create products to sell with the intention that 100% of the proceeds to go a nonprofit. A total of $1,000 was raised for location nonprofits!
The students researched local nonprofits they wanted to support and then began to design and build their products to sell. Their creations were sold at the Richland Farmers Marker and at Downtown Kennewick's Girls Night Out event on November 3. The students chose to donate the proceeds of their sales to Grace Kitchen, Tri-County Partners Habitat for Humanity, Communities In Schools of Benton-Franklin, Therapeutic Riding of Tri-Cities and Pet OverPopulation Prevention.
