HOT SPRINGS – A pie fundraiser conducted by students in the Hot Springs Middle School this past fall recently helped to support yet another local community effort when students presented a check for $500 to the Boys & Girls Club of Hot Springs.
The recent donation to the Boys & Girls Club represents just one of several things in which the fundraiser was able to support this past year, which also included assistance to the Battle Mountain Humane Society, Seven Sisters Living Center, as well as other school-related endeavors including a new drinking fountain attachment to refill water bottles and also to cover the costs of a school dance.
Boys & Girls Club representative Jessica Noteboom said the students’ $500 donation will help the club pursue its goal of making their summer programming more affordable for all students. She said this year the cost has been greatly reduced, but added their goal next year is to make it completely free for all members.
Middle School Student Council Advisor Mrs. Cope said this was the first year in which the middle school had conducted the fundraiser, and with such overwhelming success and the ability to help so many school and community organizations with the funds, she plans to have students conduct the fundraiser again next fall.
