Micah students raised more than $1,650 this season for their annual Holiday Giving Project.
The Micah Program focused on making the holidays brighter for the 18 young mothers and 20 children in the Girls' Night Out Program at Caroline Mission.
Girls' Night Out, a teen-mother program designed by Neighborhood Houses and Parents as Teachers, seeks to provide "a support system helping young moms become great moms."
Led by seniors Amanda Bartelson, Emily Tuttle and DeDe Harvey, who also served as this year's program co-chairs, Micah students wrapped the gift cards, toys, books, toiletries and other surprises at the program's holiday celebration on Dec. 9. More than 150 Micah students, faculty and staff attended the event.
