Newtown Quaker Kids raise funds for charity


The young people at Newtown Quaker Meeting host an annual Lasagna Dinner to raise funds for their “charity of choice” at the Meetinghouse, 219 Court St., Newtown.

The event is organized and run by the first through sixth graders in the Quaker Meeting.

They sell the tickets, collect the funds, serve the food, and wash the dishes. They usually raise over $1,000, and this year was no exception.

This year’s charity of choice was The Honey Hollow Environmental Educational Center in Solebury Township.

Previous recipients have been: Mercer Street Friends Food Center in Trenton, N.J., Haiti Relief, Penndel Food Pantry, Save Darfur, Heifer International, Philadelphia Friends Center Green Building Project, and Right Sharing of World Resources, a micro-loan program founded by world Quakers.
