P.S. 169 in Bayside held a bake sale on November 22 to benefit relief efforts for the victims affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

One Bayside school is lending a sweet helping hand to the Philippines.

P.S. 169, located at 18-25 212nd Street, held a bake sale on Friday to benefit Filipino relief efforts for the victims affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

Considered one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded, the typhoon made landfall on November 8 in the Samara province of the Philippines. It is estimated to have killed thousands and left many in need of water, food and medical supplies.

The students, faculty and PTA of P.S. 169 sold donated baked goods during the bake sale as volunteers, including parents and teachers, donated their time to sell the items and raise funds.

The bake sale was organized by Orit Foresta, parent coordinator, Caroline Wong, a kindergarten teacher, and Vanessa Chambers, P.S. 169 principal.

All funds gathered during the bake sale will be donated to Convoy of Hope, a nonprofit organization with volunteers providing fresh water, food, evacuation centers and other types of disaster relief for people in the Philippines.
