Baking the Way to Recovery

If people donate something, even just a little bit of money, it could make someone else’s day, which I think is really powerful,” senior Lilly Riddle said.

Blazing fire, spreading to vast regions in a matter of minutes, burning homes, and threatening lives. In California, a recent and pressing issue is wildfires. On November 8th, 2018, a wildfire destroyed over 14,000 homes and 4,265 other buildings. This was one of the biggest wildfires in California. One of the buildings that was affected by these wildfires was Paradise High School. The members of the Paradise High School need support and donations in this time of need and a great way for State High to get involved is through this year’s cookie decorating party. This year, State High’s Interactive Club hosted a cookie decorating party outside of the boys’ basketball game versus Mifflin County to raise money for Paradise High School.

Interact Club partnered with the Paradise Project for this fundraiser, a State High student-run project that is raising money for Paradise, California. We liked the idea of supporting fellow students across the country, and wanted to support the Paradise Project’s efforts,” senior and President of Interact Club, Tegan Oliver, said.  

Students at State High could not begin to imagine how the students at Paradise High School felt after losing the building that held their childhood. This encouraged them to choose this fundraiser for Paradise victims of the wildfires.

“I can’t imagine what the people affected by these fires are going through, so I feel like raising money for them is the least we could do. If people donate something, even just a little bit of money, it could make someone else’s day, which I think is really powerful,” senior Lilly Riddle said.

There are many individuals, families, schools, and other buildings that were affected by these wildfires in California. By donating money to those in need, it can benefit their community tremendously. State High is one of many places donating and lifting spirits for Paradise High School and others should look to support and to comfort these victims because it could have just as easily been our school that was affected by a similar tragedy.
