It was a chance to deal with exam stress by picking up a sledge hammer and smashing something.
It was also a chance to make a few dollars for next year’s youth in philanthropy grants.
The Northland Parkway Collegiate Youth in Philanthropy group hosted a car smash event June 7.
“We’re fundraising for next year’s grants,” student Helen Niessen explained.
She said the idea to allow students to smash a vehicle with a sledge hammer ($1 for 30 seconds or $2 per minute) was one they all loved.
“It seems different and fun,” she said.
The fundraiser collected $43, but the experience was enjoyed by all who took part.
“It is fun,” Niessen said.
