Emmanuel Christian Academy held a Helping Hands Serve-a-Thon Kickoff Dinner recently to begin a fundraising effort for the school at its location on Hualapai Mountain Road.
Here, Sara Gonzales, 5, hugs a balloon as her sister Emma, 3, runs up to play with her during the dinner.
The fundraiser helps the school cover operating expenses such as teacher salaries and keeps tuition costs lower. At the end of the fundraising period, kids from the academy will go to The Gardens Rehabilitation and Care Center to visit with seniors there.
