Craft Show to Support Students Volunteering in Cambodia

courtesy Melissa Healey

A fundraiser is being held for a group of 10 students from the University of Michigan-Flint. The students, along with two instructors, will be traveling to Cambodia next month to provide free health care and health education to orphans, abandoned children, the disabled and those living in extreme poverty.

Each student is responsible for program fees, tuition, airfare and related travel expenses. A craft show is being held to help cover some of those expenses. The event will include over 30 vendors that will feature handmade crafts, home party vendors and local foods. A silent auction, 50/50 raffle, kids games, food and a can drive will also be taking place. A $2 admission is requested.

In addition to the travel expenses, each student is responsible for procuring and transporting 50 pounds of supplies. To help them obtain the needed supplies, the group is offering extra tickets for use in the door prize raffle for anyone that donates the following items at the door:

  • Bars of Soap
  • Head Lice Treatment
  • Wash Cloths
  • Large Ziploc Bags
  • Children’s Pain Relief Medication
  • Baby Formula (Powder)
  • Antibiotic Cream
  • Vitamins

A handmade Cambodian quilt will be auctioned at the show. The craft show will be held on Aunday, April 29 at the Davison VFW Post 4087, located at 9474 Lapeer Road in Davison from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
