MVP students to raise money for African water during parade
This Saturday at the Christmas parade in Cottonwood, our community will have the chance to help MVP fourth graders to raise money to buy a foot pump for families in Africa who donít have access to clean water. For the past 5 weeks they have been studying water and its vital importance to our welfare. They have decided to end their unit with a service project to raise money for the foot pump. If you would like to donate, students will be walking alongside the float collecting donations to purchase the pump. Keep your eyes peeled, and have donations ready. Thanks for the support from our community.
