Morrison-Gordon Student Council members conducted their annual fundraiser for Good Works in November. They have been raising funds to shop for Good Works for about 10 years now. Prior to doing so, they shopped from the WalMart tree during December. In recent years, students have created a special calendar that was sent home with every student to facilitate the fundraiser. Each day described a particular aspect of their own lives for which they could be thankful, and students and families were encouraged to donate a little something each day based on the given description. Examples included putting in a dime for each pair of shoes you may have, a nickle for every pet, or a penny for each book you own.
Student Council members obtained a list of current needs from Good Works then used the contributions to go shopping for those items. Items were presented at the December whole school morning meeting for all students to see. Emily Axe, a representative of Good Works, attended the meeting and shared how Good Works assists the community and how the items will be helpful. Emily later thanked Student Council, noting how appreciative they are of the support Morrison-Gordon families give to Good Works each year through this fundraiser and how helpful it is for the positive difference this makes in the community.
