Following Thanksgiving this year, Lexington Public School’s Grade One and Two classes came up with an idea – to help those without holiday meals at Christmas.
This one idea resulted in a massive fundraiser operated by the students in partnership with Kernels Popcorn at Conestoga Mall. For five weeks, these classes collected popcorn orders from the entire school. They embarked on an ambitious mission to raise as much money as possible for the annual Rotary Turkey Drive.
Students received and calculated each popcorn purchase, sorted requests by classroom, ensured each order included the right flavors, and delivered them. By the end of the initiative, the students processed 496 orders.
Because of their dedication and hard work, they raised an incredible $2,654! Lexington Public School, thank you for caring about our community.
