Umbra Students Make Raggedy…”Anna”

Her name is a little bit different in Italian, but that didn’t present any sort of linguistic barrier to the Umbra Institute students participating in a fundraiser for Unicef. The project involves sewing together rag dolls, which are then sold to raise money for hunger prevention and vaccinations in the developing world.

This is the second semester that Umbra students have been at the heart of the fundraiser, an accomplishment noted in several local newspapers.
