Students at Fairview Elementary School participated in an annual Read-A-Thon to help their neighbors in need. 102 students in Kindergarten through fifth grade read for a total of 31,469 minutes over two weeks and raised $9,018!
The students donated $7,414 to Dollar Energy Fund to provide assistance to families struggling to afford their utility bills due to being negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Dollar Energy Fund’s utility partners matched all donations dollar-for-dollar. Their efforts will provide approximately $15,000 in utility assistance to local families in need.
Thank you to everyone at Fairview Elementary School who participated in the Read-A-Thon. We’d also like to thank Chick-fil-A for donating free sandwich coupons to each of the participating readers.
