Schools raise money for charity

Several schools in Shelby County recently raised money to help feed individuals at the Jimmie Hale Mission.

Thompson High School’s DECA and FCCLA clubs helped raise $441.51, which fed 226 people for Thanksgiving.

The school held a coin drive each day at lunch and in the classrooms to raise the money.

Third grade students at Meadow View Elementary also raised $300 for Jimmie Hale by donating pennies. Their donation fed 153 people for Thanksgiving.
