Winter Park 5th-grader bakes sweets to raise money for Ukrainians


After learning about the daily struggles, fear and pain associated with the Russian-Ukraine war, a Winter Park fifth-grader decided to do something about it.It was the recipe for something good because it stirred up a lot of emotions for 10-year-old Neve Judelson, a Park Maitland School student.”I really felt bad for the Ukrainians. I imagined myself in their position right now because they don’t know what’s going to happen in a few weeks and like where they’re going and like if they’re going to have food tomorrow,” Judelson said.Through her social studies class with teacher Daniel Minkow, she’s been learning about the current war, the countries involved and their histories, so she decided to do something about it.”Our teacher would give daily updates on what would happen and it was actually very helpful,” Judelson said.Neve held a bake sale outside her Winter Park home earlier this month and raised more than $1,300 for the Ukrainian people.”We are really incredibly proud of her. She’s really done this straight from her heart. It was her idea from soup to nuts,” Neve’s mother Maija Judelson said. Neve did everything from creating the flyers, the marketing, and the selling to the baking. Although mom did help with the latter.”She kept me on a very strict schedule of baking the day before, of all the things we had to do,” Maija Judelson said.Neve chose St. Mary Protectress Ukrainian Catholic Church in Apopka as her charity since it’s been sending food, water and medical supplies directly to Ukraine. Neve hopes her efforts will influence other children.”It sends inspiration of things they can do and they don’t need to depend on their parents to do it,” Neve Judelson said.Just a little assistance to help others who are in need.This Park Maitland School student says the church was so excited and grateful about her donation.

After learning about the daily struggles, fear and pain associated with the Russian-Ukraine war, a Winter Park fifth-grader decided to do something about it.

It was the recipe for something good because it stirred up a lot of emotions for 10-year-old Neve Judelson, a Park Maitland School student.

“I really felt bad for the Ukrainians. I imagined myself in their position right now because they don’t know what’s going to happen in a few weeks and like where they’re going and like if they’re going to have food tomorrow,” Judelson said.

Through her social studies class with teacher Daniel Minkow, she’s been learning about the current war, the countries involved and their histories, so she decided to do something about it.

“Our teacher would give daily updates on what would happen and it was actually very helpful,” Judelson said.

Neve held a bake sale outside her Winter Park home earlier this month and raised more than $1,300 for the Ukrainian people.

“We are really incredibly proud of her. She’s really done this straight from her heart. It was her idea from soup to nuts,” Neve’s mother Maija Judelson said.
