Andy Wundrock is a parent of a student here at Slinger High School, but he’s also one of the owners of a company called the Wisconsin Pharmacal. After giving a presentation to Mr. Grimm’s Sociology class, three students--Erin Keliher, Jane Schaub, and Alex Feldhusen--started a project to research the impact Wisconsin Pharmacal has on society. After realizing the large potential of the water purifier sold by the company, the three girls partnered up with Student Council to raise money for the purifiers.

The water purifier takes contaminated water and cleans it, so it’s safe to drink. Each purifier is $100, and Slinger raised enough money to successfully purchase four purifiers. These purifiers are being sent through the Red Cross to Africa, where 700,000 children on average die every year due to contaminated water. The four purifiers being sent there should save up to 4,000 lives.
