ANCHOR
 is
 hosting
 a
 bake
 sale
 on
 February
  25-­‐27
 in
 Henry
 Hall
 and
 in
 the
 Niemeyer
  lobby
 to
 raise
 money
 to
 sponsor
 a
  Challenging
 Heights
 student.
 Challenging
  Heights
 is
 an
 organization
 in
 Ghana
 that
  provides
 education
 for
 children
 who
 have
  been
 freed
 from
 forced
 child
 labor.
 The
  honors
 program
 sends
 a
 group
 of
 students
  to
 Ghana
 each
 year
 to
 work
 with
 this
  organization.
 The
 children
 are
 survivors
 of
  child
 trafficking;
 most
 of
 them
 do
 not
 have
  financial
 resources
 to
 pay
 for
 school.
 It
 costs
  $300
 to
 sponsor
 one
 child
 for
 an
 entire
 year.
  As
 a
 sponsor,
 ANCHOR
 can
 keep
 one
 child
  safe
 from
 child
 trafficking
 while
 providing
  the
 child
 with
 an
 education
 and
 a
 safe,
  empowering
 environment.

For
 ANCHOR’s
 February
 program,
  there
 will
 be
 a
 pageant
 for
 the
 men
  of
 our
 community
 to
 participate
 in!
 It
  will
 take
 place
 at
 7
 pm
 on
 Friday,
  February
 8
 in
 the
 Cook-­‐Dewitt
  Auditorium.
 The
 judges
 are
 Dr.
 J,
  Janaan
 Decker,
 and
 Erin
 Ash
 (GA
  from
 Laker
 Village)
 and
 they
 will
 be
  judging
 based
 on
 the
 following
  categories:
 GV
 wear,
 talent,
 Q
 &
 A,
  and
 lastly
 a
 Penny
 Wars
 benefitting
  Helen
 DeVos
 Fundraising
 Group.
 The
  contenders
 are
 Glenn
 Miller,
 Michael
  Hurley,
 Grant
 Price,
 Jacob
 Sackleh,
  Preston
 Purdue,
 Scott
 Hancox,
 and
  Jack
 Bontekoe.
 The
 winner
 will
  receive
 a
 gift
 certificate
 for
 the
  bookstore
 and
 a
 beautifully
 
  hand-­‐crafted
 sash.
 GrooVe!,
 a
 coed
 
 a
 cappella
 group,
 will
 be
 performing
  and
 light
 refreshments
 will
 be

 your

On
 February
 9
 and
 March
 16,
 the
  ANCHOR
 community
 service
 council
  will
 be
 taking
 a
 trip
 to
 Kids’
 Food
  Basket
 in
 Grand
 Rapids
 to
 volunteer.
  Students
 will
 be
 packing
 and
 sorting
  lunches
 for
 the
 Sack
 Supper
 program,
  which
 provides
 meals
 to
 over
 4,800
  children
 daily.
 The
 purpose
 of
 Kids’
  Food
 Basket
 is
 to
 end
 childhood
  hunger
 by
 providing
 sack
 meals
 for
  underprivileged
 children
 in
 the
 Grand
  Rapids
 area.
 Without
 the
 assistance
  of
 volunteers,
 it
 would
 be
 impossible
  to
 help
 this
 many
 children.
 To
 find
  out
 about
 more
 volunteer
  opportunities,
 come
 to
 an
 ANCHOR
  meeting
 on
 Wednesday
 nights
 at
  9:30
 pm
