Sharon Warner, the beloved cook at Merit Academy High School, heard about the severe drought situation in Kenya during a Kenya Keys school presentation. The drought caused extreme famine and an overwhelming humanitarian crisis with entire communities facing starvation. Families were having to make drastic decisions: children had to drop out of school and girls were being sold into early marriages or worse, in order to provide money for food.

Sharon knew she could do something to help the children of Kenya. Merit Academy in Springville, Utah, she, and a group of dedicated students baked and sold over 1000 cinnamon rolls! They donated all the money to Kenya Keys to ease the hunger of children 9000 miles away. In less than a day after receiving the funds, bags of food were delivered to the local school, providing over 7000 meals for the hungry children. The hard work of this compassionate team in Utah soothed the stomachs of the children and gave a sense of hope to the people of the village. Thank you Sharon – and everyone who takes a moment to discover what they can do personally to make a difference.
