WellSpring Student Spearheads Donation Campaign For Typhoon Haiyan Victims

The holiday season warms hearts and brings cheer to many who are in need, but recently, one WellSpring student went above and beyond. Medical assisting student Roylynn Smith spearheaded a donation campaign for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, the powerful storm that devastated the Philippines in early November.

Smith said, “Thanks to everyone at Wellspring School, students, administrators and faculty, for stepping up with their generous offerings for those displaced by the typhoon. It’s good to know that we did our small part to help out with so many people in need.”

WellSpring students and staff donated items to be shipped to aid in the recovery, which Smith then took to Heart to Heart International to be distributed.
