Top Fundraising students, as well as Administrators from Morton Junior High School presented a check for $540 to be placed in the Morton Helping Hands Fund, a component fund of the Morton Community Foundation. The money is a portion of the money collected by MJHS students during their MJHS Helpathon fundraiser which raised a total of $22,000 for the Junior High as well as 4 local charities.
On Wednesday, Oct. 9 the entire MJHS student body, faculty and staff went out into the community as part of this year’s fund-raiser. Students were asked to seek donations to sponsor their involvement in a service project in the community. The money raised from this new fundraiser will be used for projects around the school such as risers for the music program, digital lab equipment for the science department, wrestling mats, Scholastic Bowl materials, a Cross Country and Track timer, materials for the library, and a Softball fence. In addition 10% of all money raised is being donated to four designated charities:
- American Heart Association
- Morton Helping Hands, a Component Fund of the Morton Community Foundation
- Military families through the Family Readiness program
- Children’s Hospital
