Bake Sale For Haiti Relief

ORLANDO, Fla. -- It has been four months since the 7.0 earthquake wracked the tropical island of Haiti and there is still so much left to fix.

The Campus Crusade for Christ club at Valencia did their part, last Thursday on the East campus. The president and vice president of the club to manned a table selling baked goods and treats in exchange for a donation to the relief fund for Haiti.

The prices ranged from 25 to 50 cents and they were not selling tiny snacks. There were hand made cookies, brownies, rice crispy treats, and different kinds of muffins.

Both students and teachers, alike, contributed to the mass of treats. Alexi Minnick, vice president of Campus Crusade, made the brownies for sale.

"All of the proceeds go straight to the Salvation Army for Haiti," Carolyn Ducker said. She's the president of the club.

The donations totaled more than $20 within the first half hour of the bake sale. A few students would walk passed the table and ultimately find their way back to stop and donate.

One student, Joey Mendez, bought about a handful of cookies and brownies from the girls. He even ate a few before he left the table.

With the prices of the food so small, students were able to go home with an arm full, without spending more than $5.

Different clubs at Valencia are constantly raising money and awareness for the plight of Haiti, Campus Crusade for Christ being one that just won't give up.

"We hope to raise as much as humanly possible," Ducker said.
