Hun School of Princeton Raises More than $4700 for Hurricane Relief

The Hun School of Princeton community has raised more than $4700 for the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and other charities aiding victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as the recent Mexican earthquake. Proceeds from a barbecue, a bake sale, and Homecoming t-shirts, all went towards relief for the hard-hit areas.


The Hun Community Service Club staged an Oct. 5 barbecue, complete with line dancing and smoked brisket with all the fixings. Teachers, students, and staff bought tickets, made donations, and took part in a community event that raised $1,500. 


"We wanted to do something to help all of the places that have been hit so hard, while also bringing our own community together," said Service Club Executive Committee member Laura McBryan '18, who has been a Service Club member since her freshman year.


Hun also raised more than $550 at a bake sale with goodies donated by employees and students. And the school last week sold nearly 550 Homecoming t-shirts, which raised more than $2700 for charities. Those proceeds will be divided among: The Red Cross; Best Friends Animal Rescue, which is working to save animals endangered by the disasters; Adopt a Classroom, which aids devastated schools; and the Global Giving Foundation, a non-profit network that matches charities to donors around the world.


The Hun Community Service Club organizes many events throughout the year, including a senior citizen prom, blood drives, and a dance for developmentally disabled young adults.  All Hun School students are required to perform community service hours each year.
