Support for Strong Kids

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

Recently, all seven county elementary schools united together in support of the YMCA of Clay County's Strong Kids campaign. Each school has had, or will soon have, a fundraiser with all proceeds going to the campaign. The events include things such as hat days, penny wars and sucker sales. School contacts pictured with YMCA of Clay County Executive Director Chad Zaucha included Pam Fischer, Cindy Gerber, Kristi Jackman, Becky Jeffers, Mary Ray, Katie Sims and Debbie Zimmerman.

Thanks to the Clay City Elementary Student Council and student body. Very few of our students are able to benefit from the YMCA programs offered, yet they wanted to generously support fellow Clay County children. Representatives sell lollipops every Friday during their recess to raise funds for Relay for Life and other worthy causes. They also have had two food drives for the Southern Clay Food Pantry that brought in over 2000 items. Last week, our student body raised over $2000.00 for Riley Hospital. We are a small school and community with big hearts.
