Mountain View students receive help from fundraising campaign
Sixth-graders at Mountain View Elementary School received help from the community over the last few months thanks to the Parent Faculty Association’s (PFA) fundraising campaign via GoFundMe. The campaign was set up to raise $35,000 to send the class on various field trips and activities during the second half of the school year. While the campaign fell short of its goal, the PFA was able to raise $2,570.
Since the pandemic began over 20 months ago, the sixth-grade class, as well as other grade levels throughout the school, have found it difficult to raise donations; students and faculty been away from campus and unable to host events on school grounds. Only this fall students and faculty were allowed back on campus, but with the lingering impacts of COVID-19, the class has found it difficult to generate donations from the school and community.
The students began this year of elementary school “at a financial disadvantage,” according to the GoFundMe page. “They need your support to make sure their year ends with all the traditions and spirit they are hoping for.”
While this campaign closed a week ago, residents can still contact the PFA and Mountain View Elementary School about how to support the school and various grade levels. For info on how to help, contact email@example.com.
