On Feb. 4, 2013, the Community Service Board (CSB) sold Jamba Juice during lunch to raise money for Typhoon Haiyan relief. The CSB raised $362 according to James Russo, faculty head of the CSB.

The Typhoon, known as Yolanda in the Philippines, hit the country Nov. 8, 2013, and forced 3.9 million people from their homes according to CNN. The Leyte province was the most harshly impacted by the storm.

Two juniors, Auveen Dezgaran ’15 and Marcella Stanley ’15, brought the Jamba Juice fundraiser to life with their passion to help the relief efforts in the Philippines.

Everything went off without a hitch until the day of the event when the sale encountered technical difficulties with the One Card readers. Even with these issues the event raised a significant amount of money, all of which went directly to UNICEF.

According to UNICEF the money is used to assemble and provide Blue Bucket Hygiene kits. The kits are in a blue bucket, essential for carrying water. They also contain blankets for the ground, soap, toothpaste, sanitary napkins, tooth brushes, and laundry detergent.  UNICEF noted that the displaced people are grateful for the help.

    What a great way to help bring more blue buckets to those in need. The blue buckets are so important bringing hygiene to people without water and supplies. It helps those dealing with being displaced feel safe, clean and loved! Good job Archer. Good job on the story. Always important to hear what Archer girls are doing to help the world around them!
