SMS students thank community for Haiti fundraiser

If you bought popcorn on Frisco Main Street Saturday, you helped the people of Haiti. Summit Middle School Humanities students were challenged with the task of helping the people of Haiti overcome their hardships of natural disaster and a deprived economy. Two sixth-grade students solicited sponsorship from local businesses and their popcorn booth “Popping for the People of Haiti” raised over $130. The students are hoping their money will help support the fight against cholera, an acute intestinal infection caused by the ingestion of contaminated food or water, which is affecting a large number of Haitian people. A local Red Cross volunteer will bring the student’s funds to Haiti later this month.

The students would like to thank Frisco Elementary PTSA, Sarah Grunes from Elk Mountain Trading, Trans-Lux Movie Theatre, the Next Page Bookstore and Tea Bar, Butch Elich, and Mr. Hilbert (the owner of the Frisco Mall) for their support and participation in their fundraiser.
