Movember + Food Drive

--Our school is partnering with the Movember organization (http://movember.org) for our Movember at McKinley fundraiser.  Movember is a global non-profit whose goal is to fundraise for men’s cancers and health initiatives. Their motto is “Changing the face of men’s health.”  This organization replaces the usual ribbons used to promote awareness with mustaches.  Those who can grow them are asked to do so and those who can’t are asked to support whoever they can to fundraise and promote awareness.  We will also be awarding prizes for the classes that raise the most money. November 22nd is Movember at McKinley Day.  Every student and teacher that donates money will receive a fake mustache to wear for the day.

Donations can be made to Ms. Cooper or online at http://mosista.co/ThePrideofBayRidge

 

--Today we begin our annual food drive to benefit our local food pantry. We are collecting only non-perishable food items and nothing in glass containers to help our local food pantry to be able to help those who are less fortunate in our community. Contributions can be left in room 136.
