Wilsonville Middle School 7th graders turn inspiration into hope and collect $100 for global relief
Deeply moved by their experience in the REAL. LIFE. Exhibit, 7th graders from Inza R. Wood Middle School in Wilsonville, Oregon, decided they wanted to make a difference in the lives of the children they learned about in the exhibit.
After studying more about various African countries and the needs of children there, several students spearheaded a project to collect coins from other students at the school. They collected $100.27 and sent the money to Medical Teams International.
One of their teachers, Dusty Hoesly, wrote, “We hope you can accept this donation on behalf of our students, and that you see it as a validation of the educational outreach program you have implemented and the lasting effect you are having on young adults who visit your exhibit. Please keep up the profound and critical work you are doing.”
