Students come up with creative way to help Safe Berks


Students in Muhlenberg Township came up with a creative way to help a local nonprofit.

The Muhlenberg Middle School Youth Volunteer Corps sold shoelaces in the school's cafeteria for $1 to raise money for Safe Berks.

The shoelaces included facts about child abuse as a way of raising awareness.

"Not everyone is as fortunate enough as we are, and this was a great way to help everyone and to help people who are struggling," said Brenna Wike, a seventh grade student.

Safe Berks called the donation "amazing" and said the money will be used to help victims of domestic violence.
