LYMAN — The Lyman Youth Leadership Council (LYLC) put on a carnival, Dec. 19, to help the Philippines who were devastated by typhoon Haiyan in November.

The Lyman Youth Leadership Council is a group of 25 Urie Elementary students who voluntarily spend time serving their community and people in need, near and far.

“I divided the students into small groups to decide what our November and December service project would be,” LYLC leader Cindy Taylor said. “Each group came back and unanimously decided to raise funds for the Philippines.”

With only three weeks to plan and prepare, the council put together a Christmas Carnival that included games, entertainment, a silent auction, a raffle and a dinner.

“I was not sure if we could pull it off,” Taylor said, “but I wanted to include each of the student’s ideas, and we ended up being very successful raising funds for the Philippines and giving our local community a fun event.”

With donations from local businesses and the council’s hard work, the Christmas Carnival had zero expense and was able to raise an estimated $2,114 for families in the Philippines.

The council will send the money with missionary Mathew Cowley at New Year’s to deliver the funds directly to the Philippines.
