Heritage High School students build wood cars, donate them to shelter

The Columbian

Orchards — Susan Mangin’s Imagine It, Design It, Make It class at Heritage High School spent about nine weeks imagining, designing and making 40 trucks and cars out of wood. They worked as a team in an assembly line to complete the build, and donated 20 of the vehicles to YWCA Clark County’s SafeChoice program for children affected by domestic violence. YWCA employees Kacee Cohen and Alix Prior accepted the toys and spoke with the students about the SafeChoice program, telling the students how the toys will benefit kids who often arrive at the shelter without toys or other belongings. The students were treated to a pizza and cake lunch to thank them for their efforts.
