Universal High School BBQ Raises Funds For Gaza
The students and faculty of Universal High School in Bridgeview contributed to the Rebuilding Gaza campaign by organizing a BBQ. The end of the year cookout and fundraiser has been a tradition for nearly a decade where students get to experience a fun day outside while having the opportunity to give back to a greater cause.
This year, proceeds from the event went towards Zakat Foundation of America’s (Zakat Foundation of America) Rebuilding Gaza campaign, a new project that will rebuild hundreds of damaged homes in Gaza.
“This community is always willing to give,” said Mrs. Abuhayyeh, who previously taught at the school. “From the students to the teachers and parents, everyone is so giving when it comes to organizations and events such as this.”
