Thanks to the middle school student council for their awesome efforts in collecting Pennies for Present during the holiday season. This year the middle school students
were able to collect a total of $1,880.00 thanks to the contributions of community members, $1,402 from students and staff at the middle school, $322 Irwin building, and $145 from the Manning building. The contributions were distributed as gift cards to 28 residents at the Terrace Apartments in Manning, thirty-four students from all three communities, four elderly homes in Irwin and 8 elderly homes in Manilla. We appreciate everyone’s donation in bringing a little sunshine and happiness into other community member’s lives.
