"Stromboli for Staten Island" raises $3K for Sandy relief | News
VESTAVIA HILLS, AL (WBRC)- As many Alabamians know all too well, recovering from a natural disaster can take years. That's why one Vestavia Hills student is reaching out to Hurricane Sandy victims.
Madeline Kundler is a sophomore at Vestavia Hills High School but she's a native of Staten Island. So when she heard about the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, she felt she had to help storm victims and organized "Stromboli for Staten Island" fundraiser.
She and her mom spent days preparing the sandwiches. She and 10 classmates sold them around Vestavia and in just 10 days, they sold 150 sandwiches and collected $3,000. One friend, McKenzie Lambert, sold $1,000 worth on her own.
Over the holidays, Madeline went back to Staten Island and presented the check to "Project Hospitality" which is helping feed and house victims. She also got a tour of the relief center and saw firsthand where her money was going.
