Dakota Elementary School helps Freeport Area Church Cooperative
FREEPORT (WREX) -
Today, Dakota Elementary School presented a big check to help a local food pantry.
Earlier this year Sarah Russel, a teacher at Dakota Elementary School, worked with her students to make five Christmas trees out of 100 percent recyclable materials. After they finished, the class raffled off the trees with the benefits going to the Freeport Area Church Cooperative.
Today, the school presented the food pantry with a check from that raffle totaling $1,234.
Congratulations to Sarah Russel and the students at Dakota Elementary for such a creative way to give back to the community!
