Hayfield Caring Citizen

By
December 02, 2020

Senior Iris G. recently organized a fundraiser for those affected by the hurricanes in Honduras. Along with the help of family members, and several current and former Hayfield students, Iris created "God's Volunteers" to collect food, masks, toiletries, diapers, clothes, and medicine to send to Honduras. Members describe the experience as a "proyecto de amor" (project of love). They have dedicated countless hours to collecting, packing, and shipping the donations. Their efforts were even featured on NBC Washington!

To date the organization has raised $1,766 and enough supplies to fill ten 42x29x28 boxes! Five boxes are on their way to Honduras.
