Hometown Hero: Project Lend a Hand

Posted: Updated:

You never know when inspiration will strike.  

Last July, 13-year-old Anna Salcedo and her family went to the Philippines to visit relatives. She saw a Catholic mission there and knew she wanted to help the poorest of the poor.

When Anna got back to St. Monica's Catholic School, she asked three classmates to help her launch Project Lend a Hand. They have collected 600 pounds of clothes for women and children -- shirts, pants, shorts and shoes. They also collected $2,000 which they will also send.  

Then a deadly typhoon hit the Philippines last week and the girls decided to help the victims.

On Dec. 14 and 15 they'll hold a bake sale with cookies, pies, cakes, popcorn -- many items will be gluten-free. They hope to raise more than $1,000 and send that money to do the most good for the typhoon victims.

If you'd like to donate money for the typhoon survivors or clothes for the women and children of the mission log on to stmonicaschool.org and look for the link to help.
