Crestwood NHS Students Raise Money For Refugees in Poland and Ukraine

Crestwood NHS
The Crestwood High School chapter of the National Honor Society recently donated $400 to World Central Kitchen, an organization that provides meals to refugees in crisis around the world and that is currently providing meals for refugees of the Ukrainian conflict both in Poland and inside Ukraine as well. NHS advisor, Mr. John Marfy, said "I've been supporting World Central Kitchen personally for a couple of years, so when I saw Chef Jose Andres say in an interview that WCK was providing meals to Ukrainian refugees, I immediately decided this was a fundraiser that the Crestwood NHS should be part of."
In 2019, Crestwood NHS raised $900 for victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico through the Puerto Rico Rise Up organization. "I was born in Puerto Rico," Mr. Marfy said, "and when a friend approached me about helping through Puerto Rico Rise Up, I immediately knew our kids at NHS would help."

Funds were raised by selling Daffin's chocolate bars. NHS students each had a goal of 30 candy bars and they quickly sold out. One NHS member sold about half her candy bars to a Crestwood 4th grader who then went around his neighborhood giving away his candy bars, telling his neighbors "this is a gift, you don't have to pay me , but if you do, the money is for Ukraine." He raised $41.
