COURTESY OF DISTRICT 97
The Whittier community raised $1,543.42 in conjunction with the project it undertook to benefit Schools for Salone. The money will be used to help build a new school, library or well in Sierra Leone.
The project culminated on May 17 with a visit to the school by the band Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars. The members of the group answered questions from students and performed five a cappella songs.
