Students and staff at Trempealeau Elementary donated $2,630.50 in 20 minutes over four days. There was amazing generosity and competition! The money will benefit GET Area Food Pantry and ten Trempealeau County “Kids in Need” this Christmas.
A big thanks to the TE Student Council for making each “Kid in Need” a custom blanket. Thanks to the TE PTO for the penny drawings each day. Thanks to a wonderful group of money counters who spent hours counting coins! Thanks to all the students, staff and parents who shopped for the Kids in Need. And finally, thanks to all the people who donated their coins and dollars for this event! (excerpt from 2017 January Newsletter)
