The Ridgebury Elementary School Project Pride program in Ridgefield encourages students in grades four and five to raise money over the summer for a charity. Seven girls from Ridgebury raised $172 by holding a bake and lemonade sale. They chose the American Red Cross as their charity because they were grateful for the help the Red Cross provided in the area during and after Tropical Storm Irene in August and September of 2011.
Pictured outside the Red Cross office in New Canaan are: Maggie Pell, Katie Sauter, Lauren Thompson, Bella Jureller and Hannah Tomasetti.
Two other girls involved in the project but not appearing in the photos are: Addison Brown and Megan Klosowski.
Thanks to these young women who are making a difference in their community!
