Eagle Crest Elementary supports Ugandan students through schoolwide effort

Eagle Crest Elementary's halls were filled with global food and African student art on Monday to raise money to help Ugandan students.

A new afterschool Global Kids' Club came up with the idea of a multicultural bake and snack sale to raise awareness of the school's diversity and to raise money so more girls can attend school in Uganda.

"We wanted everybody's culture to be welcomed at this school," said fifth-grader Brizleth Rodriguez.

Offerings at the sale included Irish soda bread, enchiladas, halva sesame candy, Rice Krispies "sushi," beignets, shortbread and brownies.
