Elle and Molly

Last fall, Molly and Elle, two girls from Seattle, were looking for a service project to do at their high school, Bishop Blanchet. After connecting with Friends staff, Molly and Elle started a project to get the entire student body involved in child sponsorship. 

They hosted an assembly to share the project, and Blanchet’s Community Periods (homerooms) paired up, appointed representatives, and chose their new Godchildren. 

School-wide fundraisers have raised money for their sponsorship donations, and the students have become engaged in writing to their Godchildren. The project has continued into this new school year, with Elle and Molly introducing the new freshman class to the project. Their school event hosted Juan Manuel Pineda of NPH El Salvador for an all-school assembly, where he shared his story and his music.

Thank you so very much to Elle and Molly for being great Friends!!!

Here is Elle with Juan when he visited their school.
