Sophomore student Ruby Haro and three of her friends researched child abuse facts and wanted to do something nice for children who have been abused or neglected.  They collaborated on a group project in March 2017 that was twofold: 1) they organized High School Hat Day – in order to wear a hat on that day, students contributed $1 to Life Stories; 2) they sold fruit at baseball games, in neighborhoods, and to close friends & family members.  Between the two efforts, these young ladies raised enough money to purchase items for three gift baskets.  The gift baskets were then sold in auctions at other Life Stories fundraising events.
