ALEXANDRIA, VA – Everybody of all ages are helping Ukraine. Some 8 and 9-year-old Alexandria second and third graders recently held a bake sale to help Ukraine.
I came up with the plan. I asked my friend Edie Argetsinger if she wanted to help. Edie immediately said yes. Edie made brownie bites, sugar cookies, and chocolate cookies. I made brownies and sugar cookies.
We thank our moms for helping.
We set up our bake sale in our Braddock Heights neighborhood on a recent Sunday. Soon two of our friends joined us. At the end of the day, we made $200 to donate to help Ukrainians through Save The Children.
