Newman Catholic St. Mark Elementary gives back

Back in December,  we told you about the "Giving Store"  holiday gift buying event at St. Mark Elementary in Rothschild. Students by new and gently used items for family members. The money raised from the event is then donated to charity.

Each class selects the group it will donate to. The students have made those donations. At a school assembly, the students handed out checks to 7 organizations. Each check totaled $200. The following is a list of those charities and organizations that received money.

Preschool: Newman Catholic Schools

Kindergarten: St. Mark Circle of Joy

Grade 1: Ronald McDonald House

Grade 2: Salvation Army

Grade 3: Special Olympics

Grade 4: Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin

Grade 5: Women's Community Center

The recipients say they are impressed with the work of the children and their decision to think of others. The "Giving Store" is an annual holiday event at the school.
