A classic carnival popcorn machine has been wheeled into Penn Manor’s cafeteria and homemade ice cream is being churned and served.
But where you might expect someone like Vancouver’s ‘electrician’ from the Olympic closing ceremonies, there is a trio of students dedicated to easing the suffering in Haiti.
Working through the disaster relief fund of Compassion International, an offshoot of the world-wide child advocacy group, these volunteers, Becca Kyper, Lyndsay Funk and Grace Lefever, are using the most effective fund-raising method known to man: food.
“On Monday, we raised over $100, and now, we’re getting even more.” One hundred dollars is enough to provide medical treatment for fifty patients.

The fundraiser runs through Friday, March 5, so go buy a sundae and save a life.
