Dumplings for Sale

It is a little known fact that Eaglebrook students love dumplings. Whenever dumplings are served in Gibbs Dining Hall, they go fast. Last Friday night the Eaglebrook School Student Council hosted a dumpling sale in the Sports Center. The students were selling the dumplings to raise money for a cause brought to them at the beginning of the year by a fellow student. Project Hope is a non-governmental organization that raises money for schools in rural China. Read more about Project Hope here. The Student Council decided that this was a worthy cause to support, and decided to earmark the funds raised to go toward funding a music program at a rural Chinese school. They came up with the idea of selling fresh hot dumplings to the students because they knew how popular such a venture would be. The group raised $120.00 on Friday night. Chinese teacher and World Languages Department Chair Yuan-Hsiu Lien will be taking some students to China over March break, and they hope to visit some of the areas supported by Project Hope. Ms. Lien said that, “The students who worked on the project felt good about this first try and are thinking that they will do more when we return.”
