Los Alamos Middle School teacher Dana Kline’s “Read to Feed Fundraiser” was a whopping success raising $660 to benefit people through Heifer International.
“The seventh grade Atomic Hawks team set out to do their part to support food sustainability and end world hunger around the world through their Read to Feed fundraiser,” Kline said.
The classes raised money through pledges for books read by students.
The funds raised went to purchasing animals through Heifer International, which gives the animals to communities with the greatest need in underdeveloped countries.
The Atomic Hawks raised an amazing $660 over a six-week period.
Students asked their families to donate money for each of the books they read and for each $5 donation, students placed different colored bunnies on a hallway bulletin board in their new middle school.
The class with the most “bunnies on the board,” will receive a pizza party.
Kline, is not only their Language Arts teacher, but also the team leader for the Atomic Hawks.
Kline said she would like to extend her most sincere thanks to the parents and students who fervently embraced the fundraiser.
Students decided on the last day of school what the money raised would purchase: one llama, one pig, a pair of goats and a pair of sheep, a flock of ducks, a hive of bees, a flock of geese, a trio of rabbits, a flock of chickens and tree seedlings.
