This spring, environmental science students at The Hun School of Princeton built two We Care Solar® Suitcases – traveling energy sources. Twelve of their peers, then hand-delivered one of the suitcases to a research facility in the Amazon of Ecuador, during a School-led Global and Immersion Programs trip. In addition, a second suitcase was sent to a rural community in the Haitian village of Kwakok. The suitcases serve as an easily transportable, renewable, and sustainable energy source, powered by the sun, for remote villages with limited electrical resources. The parts for both suitcases were purchased with funds from the 2014-2015 Parents’ Association Faculty Grant program.

For the past year, Hun School students Logan and Sam Leppo ’17 have been hard at work in their family workshop constructing handmade wooden toys to donate to local homeless children. The twin brothers are fourth generation woodworkers, and their passion for crafting is a tradition they wanted to share with others. Over the past year, they designed, cut, sanded, and assembled toy dogs and cars – 50 in total. On Wednesday, July 8th, they donated the toys to children at HomeFront during a “Christmas in July” celebration. Logan and Sam now have a bigger goal – they want to partner with woodworking students across the country to create handmade toys for every homeless child in America.
