The City Year team at MS 302 in the South Bronx recently raised money for World Vision, a “humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.” Students donated a dollar and then received a heart which were then displayed on the wall of the cafeteria. We called it “World Vision Valentine.” The top three students who raised the most money got to pie a corps member on Pi Day (March 14). It was a huge success! We raised over $280 and presented the check to Tim Reeze, Storehouse General Manager of World Vision, pictured below.
