This December, the 3rd/4th grade classroom, The Tundra, raised $189.00 at its Poetry Cafe. The class decided to donate to Feed My Starving Children, an organization that packages food sent to starving children all over the world.
The next month, the students took a fieldtrip to Feed My Starving Children to present their donation and learn more about the program. During their two-hour visit, they made and boxed 4,752 meals. These meals can feed thirteen children for an entire year. They also proudly presented their $189.00 donation that will cover the cost of purchasing the food for three additional children for an entire year.
The 3rd and 4th graders were so pleased to have helped so many others in need. They learned in a very concrete way how much their time and money can help others.
