Moose Lake students raise funds for typhoon victims
Moose Lake Elementary sixth-graders wanted to help the victims in the Philippines that were displaced due to Typhoon Haiyan. On Fridays and days before Thanksgiving break, students have been encouraged to participate in "Hats On for the Philippines." Students can wear hats during the day if they bring in a dollar. Over the last two weeks, Moose Lake Elementary students and staff have raised about $400. "Hats on for the Philippines" will continue through Dec. 20.
The Moose Lake Elementary staff decided to take it a step further. Students will make holiday and kindness cards that will be sold at Thrifty White Drug (both locations), Joe Jitters, Lazy Moose Café, Arts Café, Moose Lake Florist, First National Bank, Downtown Dental, Holiday Station Store, Moose Lake Independent Insurance Agency, Davidson Insurance Agency, Hoffman Ace Hardware, Moose Lake Federal Credit Union, and Moose Lake Coop Service Station. They will also be sold during the kindergarten, first- and second-grade concert on Dec. 19, which will be held at 1 p.m., outside the Moose Lake School Auditorium. The cards will cost $1 and all proceeds will go to the American Red Cross in efforts to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
If you plan to attend the concert on Dec. 19, you are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to support our local food shelf.
