Help Fourth Grade Donate to Heifer International!

Hi! We are the fourth graders at Hardwick Elementary School. We are trying to raise money to donate to Heifer International. We are trying to raise $500 to send a heifer to help a family in Africa. The cow will be used for milk for the family or to sell, making cheese and butter, for making fertilizer for gardens and for breeding. 

On April 17th we will be traveling to the Flynn Theater to see the African Children's Choir. All of the children in the choir have great talents like singing, dancing and playing instruments. Many of them have suffered hard times in their lives - some lived in poverty and some have no parents. We wanted to try to help people who are like them. 

We are taking bottles and cans and donations to raise money for our project. We are also holding a bake sale Thursday and Friday 4/2 and 4/3 at the front office and downstairs during Parent/Teacher conferences. 
You can donate to our Heifer website here:  OR drop off donations of bottles, cans or money to HES! 

Thank you for your support!!
