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.
