8th Grader Moved to help less fortunate children
Olivia Garber, an 8th grader at Wilmington Friends School was called to action when she learned of the horrifying statistic that 1 out of every 4 children in Delaware live in poverty and may not have a coat for the winter.
She researched different organizations and became interested in Operation Warm-a non-profit that originated in her own back yard. She loves the idea of a local organization solving a local problem. She used her passion for baking to raise money and awareness for Operation Warm. Olivia challenged the Sunday school kids at Beth Emeth in Wilmington Delaware to raise money. The best performing class won a cupcake party.
At the end of the challenge, over $500 was raised, delicious cupcakes were eaten and the Delaware community became aware of the fantastic work of Operation Warm. Olivia plans to continue with this project and bring it to her high school next year.
