SVE Participates in Pints to Gallons for Coldwater
Coldwater is a local organization that assists families in need in our area. They provide food, toiletry items, diapers, etc. They recently were able to purchase a walk-in refrigerator and would like to be able to provide milk for their families. Our students did a Pints to Gallons coin drive to donate all the proceeds to them so they can purchase milk to have on hand to give to families. Milk is very important and with it being a fresh and perishable item, most organizations don't have the means or storage to offer it. Now Coldwater does and we wanted to help. Milk is full of vitamins and minerals and helps growing bones. SVE had a class challenge and raised over $1200 that converts to 400 gallons of milk our school was able to help provide.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students worked with the PE teacher to spread the word to bring in change for the donation to Coldwater. They also did a challenge in between each class and teacher to see who could raise the most.
