Kids helping kids at Dublin Middle

Students at Dublin Middle School stuck to the motto of "kids helping kids" during a recent fund-raiser called "Pennies for Patients."
During the three weeks that the fund-raiser lasted, the students at DMS, along with the help of teachers, administrators and staff, raised a total of $1,518.37, according to Meagan Pratt, a DMS school counselor who organized the fund-raiser.
The money from Pennies for Patients will go directly toward the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help children and teens who have or have had those types of cancer.
Pratt explained that the idea was for the students to bring in spare change for the fund-raiser, hence, the name Pennies for Patients. The school originally set a goal of raising $500. However, by the end of the first week, the school surpassed that goal with $800 raised.
She noted that some individuals did stick to the idea of donating spare change, but others also brought in as much as $100.
"Everyone came together and contributed," Pratt said. "They were very generous."
One class in particular raised the most money. The 18 seventh grade students in Buddy Farris’ homeroom class raised $205.05, making them the top fund-raisers at DMS.
Pratt noted that as an incentive, Farris offered to donate one dollar for every dollar his students contributed.
In recognition of their generosity, Farris’ class was rewarded with a pizza party last week.
