WYOMING, Mich. (WOTV) A West Michigan teen is making a big difference in her community. Danielle was challenged to start a fundraiser as part of her involvement on the Kids’ Food Basket Youth Action Board. She came up with the idea to gather and sell used formal dresses to fellow high school students. Danielle’s mom put a post on Facebook, and donations of dresses, shoes, and accessories came pouring in. Danielle sold the items at deep discounts so students could afford them, but still raised $500 with a sale at Godwin Heights High School.
About 100 students are involved in the Kids’ Food Basket Youth Action Board. Through the program, they learn leadership skills, civic engagement, and how to be a responsible member of the community.
Danielle’s sale was so successful, she plans to hold more at other schools in the near future.
