Ballard High School’s Latinx Student Union is raising money at MOD Pizza (6010 15th Ave NW) in Ballard starting next week to help cover costs to send 10 of their members to a leadership camp.
The fundraiser, which starts Tuesday, Jan. 14th, will be on several Tuesdays through March 17th at MOD (full list of dates below). The Latinx Student Union advisor Leti Bravo says when you purchase your meal at MOD, you should mention the BHS Latinx group and 20 percent of the meal’s price will be donated to the students.
This is just the second year of the Latinx Studen Union. The leadership camp they hope to attend is La Cima, sponsored by Washington Student Leadership at Camp Cispus.
