Fundraisers go above and beyond

Issaquah High School students have gone above and beyond in their three fundraisers so far this year.
Stuff the Bus was a toy drive for Seattle Children’s. For a week, students stuffed a bus full of toys and books for the children at the hospital. In addition, many took the time to write kind notes to patients.
“Seattle Children’s was very appreciative and they even wrote an article about Issaquah High School’s donation in the magazine they publish,” junior Suzy Emerson, Associated Student Body representative, said.
For the second fundraiser, students had a food drive for the Issaquah Food Bank and made approximately 200 bagged lunches for Heroes for the Homeless.
“The Issaquah Food bank was also very excited about the donation, especially because the amount of canned goods improved significantly from last year,” Emerson said. “They really appreciated it, because this is the time of year when they need food most, and they let us know that.”
The week before winter break, there was a book drive benefitting Literacy for Love with Jackson High School. ASB has yet to hear about the results of the drive.
