Western Wayne teachers held a fundraiser for the Wayne County Food Bank during the school closure to give back to the community during the COVID-19 emergency.
The teachers worked diligently to spread the word in the community to raise the funds through the selling of shirts that appropriately read “Wildcat Strong.” Because of the efforts of the teachers with the help of the Wildcat community, $1050 was raised for the Wayne County Emergency Food Relief Fund through the shirt sale.
“We began this fundraiser in the midst of us learning a new way of teaching because the health and well-being of our students is at the forefront of our priorities,” Melissa Williams, Western Wayne Middle School teacher, said. “We are so grateful to the community for helping us in our efforts to raise these funds to help those in need.”
In addition to the money raised from the t-shirt sale, WWEA, the teachers of the Western Wayne Education Association, also, donated $1,000 to the Wayne County Emergency Food Relief Fund making the combined donation total $2,050.
The teachers of Western Wayne felt grateful about having the opportunity to give back to the community during this difficult time.
