A number of seventh graders from Pella Christian High School accepted the challenge of one of their teachers to make a difference in the world and are working to help children in Haiti.  Science teacher Courtney Van Wyk said the goal for the student’s project was to think of a way to help the community or people outside of the community.Cara Veenstra, Karlie Anderson, Elaina Vos and Betsy McClellan decided to make soakers for reusable cloth diapers for children in Haiti; Soakers are the inserts that go inside the reusable diaper.  The reusable diapers won’t just save Haitian women money – it will also allow Haitian women to earn money from the project as they assemble a part of the diaper when it arrives in Haiti.  Students at PCGS donated 217 towels for the project, which made 3,414 soakers for the diapers.  About half of the soakers were finished in January and were sent with Karlie Anderson’s parents.;The rest of the soakers were finished last week and will be sent with Many Hands for Haiti.
