Gilbert M.S. FCCLA – Dodgin’ for Water

The team at Gilbert Middle School really brought a smile to our faces with this very creative way to raise money.  Who knew a gym class favorite could do so much good?  Check out what Mrs. W. wrote…

Our middle school chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) heard about The Water Project from our high school chapter, and the middle school students wanted to earn money to provide clean water to the people of Africa.

We held a dodge ball tournament at the end of March called “Dodgin’ for Water” where all students who participated had to collect at least ten dollars as an entry fee. Almost 100 students participated. We were amazed when the evening produced $1,640.00 for The Water Project.

We’re amazed too!  And we can’t wait to show you pictures from the projects you will help build in a few months.  And hey…do you have any great pictures of someone taking a good hit for clean water?  Send ’em along.
