New Richmond’s Locust Corner Elementary’s Student Council split the proceeds of its coin jar contest in March with the New Richmond Food Pantry to help the Moscow tornado victims.
LCE students raised $1,589.91 and donated $800 to the Food Pantry. The remaining money will go to purchase items for LCE’s Sixth Grade Farewell party at the end of the school year.
“After Student Council heard about the tornados that hit our neighbors in Moscow, we decided to donate half of our money to help the tornado victims,” said student council advisor Erin Parker.
Jars were place in each classroom for coin donations during the month of March. Kimberly Barth’s third grade class raised the most money with $229 in coins and won a pizza party with LCE principal Julie Renner.
“The Student Council wants to thank all of the LCE students, staff, and families that gave so much during our coin jar contest,” Parker said.
