Guatemalan Fiesta Raises Money for Common Hope

March 22, 2015 10:35 PM

Duluth students were dishing up everything from black beans, rice, chicken, and ice cream for a Guatemalan Fiesta at the Pilgrim Congregational Church on Sunday.

These meals were part of fundraiser for a group traveling to Antigua, Guatemala this summer. They are working for Common Hope which is a Minnesota non-profit organization that provides medical care, housing and education to kids in Guatemala.

A trip coordinator, Stacey Achterhoff, said they'll pay for their own expenses, but part of their responsibility it to raise $4,000 for kids waiting for sponsors through Common Hope. Achterhoff said they have until June 7th to raise the money, and they're currently about halfway.
