The environmental science club is hosting its annual Jelly Belly sale for Clearbrook hospital and to help save rain forests.
Last year the environmental science club saved over 12 acres of rainforest.
“I’m just trying to save the rainforest,” Liz Aparicio, sophomore, said. “This has motivated me to do charity at church too.”
The Jelly Belly sale is funding money for Clearbrook hospital for the mentally handicapped. Environmental science club has donated about $550 to Clearbrook so far. Charity work has inspired students participating in the sale.
“I can relate to the people in the hospital,” Jessica Freels, freshman, said. “Since I have ADHD too, it makes me want to help them more.”
