Each group in the class investigated different charities, presented them to the class and, together, picked a winner.
This term they chose Kind Tree and donated a $5,000 grant courtesy of Wells Fargo.
“We wanted to give the money to somebody who could really take the $5,000, and seriously make a difference within their community. Whereas a lot of the other organizations, $5,000 really didn’t mean that much to them because they were a lot bigger,” said student Jane Lyon.
This was the eleventh year Wells Fargo provided the grant for the program.
Kind Tree plans to use the money to launch a new program for adults with autism.
