The eighth grade students are studying The Works of Mercy. The Works of Mercy challenge us to provide the "basics" that people need to live. The students, under the direction of Mrs. Haase, chose to support Heifer International. The organization provides "livestock, training, and critical opportunities to families." The students chose to provide a family in need with an alpaca to have high-quality wool for warmth in cold weather. A flock of chicks was also donated by Mrs. Haase. The chicks will grow and give eggs daily for the family income. This income can be used for the family's education and basic necessities.
