Members of the high school Habitat for Humanity Club used icing, candy and graham crackers to help elementary school students build gingerbread houses during the annual Gingerbread House Making fundraiser on Dec. 13.
“This year’s event exceeded all previous years,” said social studies teacher Chris Doyle, who advises the club with math teacher Zhanna Cabrera. “It is an event that really brings the school community together, as high school students get to work with and know the elementary students in a setting where they have fun and raise money for a good cause.”
The students raised more than $1,000 to benefit the Fuller Center for Housing of Greater New York City, based in New Rochelle. The money will go toward supplies for building homes for low-income residents in the area.
