Lilly Simpler, Brianna Christensen, Violet Simpler, Adelaide Botz, and Marley Todd were just a handful of Cordova’s kids who took part in the Kids’ Bake Sale on Main Street March 29, to raise money to help people facing famine in South Sudan, Africa. Proceeds were donated to Doctors Without Borders, a humanitarian aid organization that is delivering emergency medical aid to people in South Sudan affected by conflict, epidemic diseases, exclusion from health care, and malnutrition.

The bake sale, which raised $680, was a community effort led by Girl Scout Troop 247, the Puddle Jumper group, and members of St. George’s Episcopal Church.
