Significant School Project: One Helping Hand At A Time - One Helping Hand at a Time is a school organization run by students at Edmonds Woodway High School who want to provide those who are in less fortunate situations with basic necessities for living. Rather than just providing them with money, the students in our organization put the funds we collect towards products that are reduced in price because they are sold in bulk. We personally make care packages that are hand delivered to those in Seattle who need them. These care packages are full of snacks, blankets, toiletries among other things that are highly priced in the convenience stores of Seattle. Our students want to make sure that even the people living outside our community are well cared for because those who we provide with this service are still part of the Seattle community.
