Unity Makes Community by Sunny Huang and Alex Xu

Video submitted by Sunny Huang and Alex Xu, ages 15:

The Wellness Center at Saratoga High School runs preventative mental health programs for its students. However, because of the pandemic, the Center suffered a budget cut. To sustain the wonderful programs, Innovart Foundation organized three fresh vegetable and fruit sales to raise funds for it.

Innovart first reached out to a farm produce provider, who agreed to drive fresh produce to the school. The Foundation then sent out and collected order forms online.

On the pick-up day, Sunny Huang from Saratoga High, and Alex Xu from Lynbrook High, volunteered to help with unloading, sales, and clean-up. Buyers each chipped in small donations on top of their regular fee to offer help. Small bills add up to assist a bigger cause. The Wellness Center later used part of the donations for a Wellness Monday.

Fundraising turned out to be an effective way to help the community.
