The students coordinated a school-wide collection of basic need items as well as a collection of money. Mrs. Silsbee class raised the most money and won a pizza party. Overall, the school collected $500 which they used to buy sheets, pillows, towels and blankets. They also collected approximately 10 boxes of basic needs items.
