Elrose's We Care Club is making a difference with their We Bake for Change project. The bake sale started on Wednesday and continues to run up until today.

Hayley Willner, a teacher and member of the We Care Club, says that this is part of their global initiative, "Through the We Care Club, you have to complete a local and global initiative every year to be eligible to go to We Day. It's their way to encourage kids to complete local and global acts. So we have had a couple local acts and couple more on the act."

So far, the bake sale has raised $184.25. All the proceeds will be donated to provide food and water in Kenya.

Willner says the group was very committed to this fundraiser, "They brought tons of baking, enough that we could sell for three days. They've all been there selling at noon. They have all been very dedicated to this fundraiser."

The We Care Club includes several students this year from grade 6 through 12. The group works on their projects through the Me to We Foundation. The goal is to raise money for a third world country in need, keeping the theme 'opportunity for food and school' in mind. Elrose's annual goal is to raise at least $500.00.
