Second-graders raise money for Mary's Meals

April 22, 2011|Melita Wishard | Around Maugansville

Second-graders at Maugansville Elementary School raised more than $640 to contribute to Mary’s Meals to help with world hunger, specifically lunches for school-age children.

The fundraiser was part of their Service Learning Project with the focus on how they can help others. The children went through many steps to raise the money, including research, production of goods, advertising and sales. The second-graders will display their work the morning of May 3 at the school.
