The Edgewood Cares club met for the first time this school year. Their first project is to hold an auction to collect monies for hurricane victims. Teachers are generously donating handmade items, fresh baked items, lunch in their classrooms, and free homework passes for students to bid on. We are all excited about these many fun opportunities as we work to help others!
Do you like volunteering to help organizations & causes such as Riley's Children's Hospital, the Boomerang Back-Pack program, Feed My Starving Children, and the Edgewood Canned Food Drive?
