$2500 | Changing the World One Blanket at a Time

Mead High School

Mead High School students spent their $100 at Joann Fabrics on materials to make tie-blankets. Next, they donated the blankets to the Hutton Settlement to spread warmth and show the resident foster children they care.

$1500 | Kranes for Kids

Mead High School

These kids created paper cranes out of dollar bills, sold them for 3 dollars each, and used the funds to buy sweaters and sweatshirts for foster kids who need them.

$1000 | Literacy Heroes

LCHS Student Council Juniors

Believing third grade to be extremely important in a child’s educational development, these “Literacy Heroes” visited third grade students at Dalton Elementary School to help improve their reading skills.
