Each year the TGU Towner National Honor Society is involved in various service projects and recently, this group held a fundraiser to benefit the American Red Cross. Members organized a school wide collection of funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
All class K-12 had a competition to see which group could collect the most money. The second grade class netted $335.84 by holding a bake sale and was awarded a ‘pizza party’ compliments of the NHS. Overall, the school was able to raise $1,463.67 and donated the funds to the Mid-Dakota Chapter of the Red Cross to help supplement the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
“We certainly appreciate the efforts of everyone at TGU Towner Schools and the National Honor Society,” said Mid-Dakota Chapter Executive Director, Allan McGeough. “All of their hard work means a great deal to those that lost everything as a result of this storm.”
This type of fundraiser not only benefits the Red Cross as they continue to serve those affected by disasters, but it also shows the impact young people can make in their communities and throughout the world.
“The NHS would like to thank the American Red Cross for their work in meeting the needs of those affected by natural disasters,” TGU Towner NHS Advisor Wayne Judkins wrote in a letter to the Red Cross.
