Wooster High School - Hugs for Kenya

Wooster High School serves as the site for Hugs for Kenya. Students at Wooster organized fundraisers throughout the Wooster School District, the Wooster chapter of Grace Church as well as Ashland High School. All the drives were dedicated to aiding children in villages, schools, orphanages and other child-related areas in Kenya. The organization not only benefited the needy children of Kenya, but also provided a source for the local Wooster community to support a common purpose and celebrate the gift of hope.
