The Vallejo City Unified School District has begun collecting money to help the Philippines recover from last year’s devastating typhoon.
“During the tragedy in the Philippines, Typhoon Haiyan, we were thinking about how we can have our students involved in expressing their concerns. … We came up with this project. We’re trying to tie academics and heart, and raise the consciousness about service,” said Tony Ubalde, president of the Vallejo school board.
Called “Change for the Children,” the district is asking the community to donate some change (or more) for Philippine schools.
