Cook for charity

ST. CHARLES, MO (September 27, 2022) – Two Duchesne students are using their baking skills to raise money for charities in St. Louis.

Juniors Julia Winkeler and Katie Hill began hosting bake sales for their classmates in the halls of Duchesne last year as part of a STEM class assignment. STEM is an adjunct class in the Duchesne’s Scholars Academy curriculum.

“One of our assignments was to do a capstone mini-project for the benefit of the community,” Winkeler explained. “Katie and I teamed up and came up with the idea of ​​having a bake sale.”

Their first bake sale was held in December 2021 and raised $454 for the St. Louis Chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. In February, another bake sale raised $360 for the Wings program, which helps pay hospice bills for pediatric patients.

The duo continued their work this school year with a sale to benefit Kids Rock Cancer, an organization that uses music to help pediatric patients cope with their cancer diagnosis. For three days, students could choose from a variety of tasty treats to buy and help support a good cause.

“We are very committed to helping pediatric patients because we both have personal experiences with family members with childhood illnesses,” Winkeler said.

The next Winkeler and Hill Bake Sale will take place on December 4 during the Pioneer Christmas Event and during lunch on December 5-6. Proceeds will be donated to the St. Louis Chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
