Indialantic Elementary School 6th Graders Holding Fundraiser For Water for Sudan

BREVARD COUNTY • INDIALANTIC, FLORIDA – Kim Donovan’s sixth graders at Indialantic Elementary School are participating in a reading service project to assist children in need in Africa – and the kids need your help.

“A Long Walk to Water,” is based on a true story about a boy that faces horrific circumstances as a young child.

“A Long Walk to Water,” is based on a true story about a boy that faces horrific circumstances as a young child.

The students will host a fundraiser for Water for Sudan, as Donovan’s sixth grade class is currently reading the award-winning novel, “A Long Walk to Water,” which is based on a true story about a boy that faces horrific circumstances as a young child.

He is a “lost boy” refugee, destined to cover Africa on foot, searching for his family and safety. He is eventually adopted and comes to the United States.

In the end, Salve attends college and is now head of a non-nprofit organization that drills wells for fresh water in Sudan.

Students will host a rummage and bake sale in the Indialantic Elementary cafeteria, located at 1050 N. Palm Avenue, on Saturday, April 26 from 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. to benefit Water for Sudan.

Please e-mail Donovan.kimberly@brevardschools.org for more information or if you have items you would like to donate. Monetary donations are also being accepted. All of the proceeds will go to Water for Sudan in honor of the Indialantic sixth graders.

Please visit WaterForSudan.org to learn more about this project.
