Students From Sheyenne High School Donating More than 800 Items to the YWCA

Teachers at the high school say the first 1,000 days of a newborn's life can determine a lot of the child's future

FARGO, ND — Students at Sheyenne High School have been learning about childhood development and raising funds and collecting donations for little ones in need.

They raised more than 800 items to donate to the YWCA for babies from impoverished families.

Teachers at the high school say the first 1,000 days of a newborn’s life can determine a lot of the child’s future.

These students are changing those futures by providing every day necessities for these toddlers.

“I learned like how much people are in need and like how we can help them. It means a lot because it’s like anybody can help out so it just feels really good,” Alice Clark, a freshman at Sheyenne High School, said.

The group says they are definitely planning to continue the baby drive at Sheyenne High School.
