Hop-A-Thon Donation Results… We raised $1,000.00 for Muscular Dystrophy!!!March 18th, 2013 by Valerie Frost-Lewis
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A COMMUNITY OF FAMILIES AND STAFF COMES TOGETHER!!!
Dear Families and Staff,
I am truly touched by the outpouring of donations we collected for the Muscular Dystrophy Association during our Hop A Thon last week. I went right to the post office today and mailed our donations to the MDA, because I was so excited!
The $1,000.00 collected is a combination of online donations and those handed in by Peppermint Tree Families and Staff. As a matter of fact, when counting up the donations today, we were at $968.00 when two staff members decided to get together to put in an additional $32.00 to make our school’s contribution a total of $1,000.00!
Our children learned about disabilities, and about helping others in need, and you set a wonderful example for them by supporting this wonderful cause, which helps children who have this dibilitating disease.
Thank you for making a difference for your children and for children in need who suffer from Muscular Dystrophy. Together we can do great things! Thanks for being a part of of The Peppermint Tree Community.
