Description: 

This project helped raise money and awareness to provide life-altering medical treatment for refugee children from Syria at the same time. Our students partnered with INARA, a relief organization based out of Beirut Lebanon. The students partnered with the Oshkosh Mid Morning Kiwanis to host a spaghetti dinner before a varsity boys basketball game. The event raised $5,600.

Project question: Why should we help children impacted by war?
