YGC: Craft sale at Cedar Falls High

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) Jewelry, snowmen, hats.

"We're doing craft sale and baked goods," said student Morgan Henriksen.

Nine special needs students at Cedar Falls High School organized a craft sale.

"We're trying to raise funds to go on multiple field trips and we're going to take field trips to Gallagher Bluedorn for plays and then usually at the end of the year we take a big field trip whether it's to the Des Moines Zoo or museum," said Tammy Frahm.

Teacher Tammy Frahm also takes the juniors and seniors to prom and they go out to dinner before the dance.

"The students made a majority of the craft items and then we had items that were donated by friends and family," said Frahm.

"We made snowmen and gloves," said Henriksen.

Besides making items, most of the students also worked the craft sale to help sell the items.

"All of my students have special needs and I think this is an experience for them to see that they can do more than what they think they can do, and how excited other people are to see the work they've done and completed," said Frahm.

The students are happy to see people purchase their items and can't wait for field trips.

"Yeah. We're excited," said Henriksen.

This was the first year for the student-organized craft sale, but Frahm said she plans to make it an annual fundraiser.
