18th Annual Heifer Marketplace Comes to the Renbrook Campus

Renbrook sixth graders Danica Q. and Meredith D. showed their support for Heifer International with their 18th annual Heifer International Marketplace on campus. Heifer’s mission is to end hunger and poverty while caring for the Earth and Renbrook is the only school in Connecticut that offers an entire curriculum around Heifer International. Students learn to write letters asking for donations, and practice public speaking for the marketplace where students persuade visitors to donate. This year the students raised over $9,000

Since 1944, Heifer International has provided livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of those who struggle daily for reliable sources of food and income. Heifer is currently working in 30 countries, including the United States, to help families and communities become more self-reliant.
