EagleRock! Gives Water, Gives life

Keota EagleRock! students hold up the check of collected funds for the Thirst Project.

Keota - Keota EagleRock! and the KHS Student Council, due to the generosity of the Keota Community and Schools, have raised $556.80 for the Thirst Project! This results in a new well, which means that 22 people now have clean water for life. Keota student and EagleRock! member Lauren Imhoff shared her thoughts on the Thirst Project participation.

            “The Thirst Project has been a real cool way for our little school to give back. Twice this year we were able to do a reading relay and a hat day to raise money for this project. Knowing that we were able to give lots of kids a lifetime supply of water is an awesome feeling, and something that should be celebrated. Overall, this project and what it stands for is something that we are all pretty proud of!” Lauren Imhoff said.

            For the past seven years, the Thirst Project has been raising awareness about the clan water crisis in American schools. Students in California brought the organization to life in the first place.
