Charles Hay World School participates in holiday bazaar as way to help feed students

Posted

This year marks the 40th annual Englewood Holiday Bazaar.

The event features creative artisans and a wide range of arts and crafts, and it's a fun communitywide event to get people in the holiday spirit.

But what happens at one of the hundreds of booths at this otherwise traditional holiday bazaar is a bit different.

For four years, the wellness team at Charles Hay World School has hosted a booth to raise money to feed its students. These are students who need a healthy meal but don't qualify for free or reduced lunch.

The team solicits donations from the community for craft supplies. Then everyone creates handmade crafts to sell at the booth. The entire school community comes together to man the table as well as share their stories, ideas and support to make Charles Hay World School a healthier place.

All proceeds from this booth directly benefit the school's lunch program.

Charles Hay World School is a learning community empowering individuals to create a better world through academic excellence, inquiry and thoughtful, caring, responsible action.

The Englewood Holiday Bazaar is Saturday, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Malley Recreation Center, 3380 S. Lincoln St. Admission is free, and concessions will be open for snacks and refreshments.
