#InspiringExcellence – Charitable Tacos for Haiti a Success
On Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016, the ECC Rotaract Club held their seventh annual Walking Tacos sale. While the effort every year is to raise money to benefit those in need, this year the goal was extra special.
“We pair with a charity every year, but it was recommended by a student of the club that we donate to Heifer International, a charity that helps those in poverty around the world,” club adviser Karen Klos said.
Rotaract Club made record sales this year, collecting $150.53, which will go directly to the relief effort for victims of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.
“The whole organization itself helps out by giving out food, water, sanitary kits and other necessities,” Rotaract member Sarah Howell said. “They also donate livestock depending on the amount of money you donate. For example, $20 is equal to a flock of chicks and you can buy a full goat for $120 or a share for $10.”
