Student Coordinates Visit to Campus
Linden Hall welcomed Mr. Murat Kose of the Zakat Foundation to school yesterday to speak at Assembly. Mr. Kose's talk focused on what the foundation is and how it helps lower income elementary students in the United States.
Mr. Kose's visit to Linden Hall was coordinated by Anam Syed and the Schnell Sorority and kicks off their fundraising efforts for the Send a Child to School with Confidence backpack program. For every $50 raised, 5 children in Chicago or on the Eastern seaboard will receive a backpack full of school supplies. Syed hopes to raise enough to provide 50 students with backpacks; however, for her: "the number doesn't matter; our effort and intent does. We want to help these kids and every backpack will do that."
