Northshore pitches in to help

Ten-year-old Brian and nine-year-old Christine Nafziger set up a donation table in their neighborhood on Sept. 13. (See page 6.) The two raised a total of $760 which was sent to the Red Cross.
   Their parents are Meg and Steve Nafziger of Woodinville.
   Students at Timbercrest Junior High School raised $4,000 over three days. They advertised the drive on their ASB-TV and set up donation jars around the school.
   Handprints of all the students at Maltby Elementary were made and then combined in the shape of a huge flag which was hung from the school building.
   On Monday, Sept. 24, students at Hidden River Middle School in Snohomish presented a check for $18,000 to the CEO of Snohomish Red Cross.
   The 328-member student body raised the money through carwashes held at Play It Again Sports, Woodinville Athletic Club and gas stations in Woodinville and Snohomish. Other donations came from local businesses.
   Students at Wellington Elementary gathered around a large map of the United States created on their playground to put hearts on Washington, D.C., New York and Pennsylvania.
   The 30' x 15' map is an educational tool planned and developed by Joe Lorenz (Wellington, '00) for his Eagle Scout project.
   This is merely a sampling of the many individuals and groups in the Northshore area who have worked and donated their time and money to help the victims of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.
