MMS students raise money for UNICEF
The Builders Club at Macedonia Middle School recently held a contest at the school to collect money for Trick or Treat for UNICEF.
Each homeroom was given a box, and students were encouraged to bring in pennies to put in the box. This worthy endeavor was to support UNICEF's Eliminate Project, which has set a goal to "eliminate material and neo-natal tetanus in third world countries. If a child is born with this disease, it only lives about a week and dies a painful death. To cure this disease, the mother needs three injections at a cost of $1.80 total.”
Kiwanis International has joined forces with UNICEF to eliminate this problem.
Students at Macedonia Middle rose to the challenge and donated $343.37. The class with the largest amount collected was rewarded with a pizza party; congratulations to Mr. Craig Breedlove and his all girl homeroom who collected $136.56.
The MMS Builders Club is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Moncks Corner.
The Macedonia Community Action Project is working on its annual Spring Tea fundraiser. It will be held in May at the Oak Grove PH Family Life Worship Center.
This year the fundraiser will feature a fashion show. Ladies may plans to reserve a table now.
