A TEACH member, Ms. Yaldo, is very proud to work with some amazing students and staff at Agnes E. Beer Middle School. The school held a week-long fundraiser, Let’s Make A Difference, which ran from Oct 13 through Oct 17th. The generosity of students and staff surpassed our expectations. We were able to collect $725 in monetary donations and two dozen new coats to help displaced Iraqi Christians and other minorities stay warm this winter.
Also, 34 staff members participated in a US Ice video to have the ice company donate $10 on each of their behalf.
Special thanks goes to Annette Lauria, school principal, for her time and support during the fundraiser. It was a great team effort, especially through the Social Studies department. They took the time to share current articles as well as a PowerPoint presentation in regards the urgent needs of the displaced Iraqi Christians with all students.
Finally, Ms. Yaldo would like to thank Happy’s Pizza for their generosity and willingness to provide the winning grade level with a pizza party. Other sponsors, listed below, have donated lots of awesome prizes to be given out to students who truly made a difference with their donations
