MMCRU Superbowl Fundraiser helps local military manís unit
Recently, the MMCRU School District had their own Superbowl to collect items to send to Derek Swain and his military unit. Derek is the son of one of the middle school staff members, Shawn Schroeder.
All students and staff were invited to bring listed items to designated areas in their schools. They also got to use their items to vote for who would win the Superbowl, the Philadelphia Eagles or the New England Patriots.
In the end, the majority of the students and staff voted in favor of the Eagles and predicted they would win the Superbowl this year, which happened to come true.
Some students also wrote kind letters, colored pictures, and signed a poster to send along with the supplies.
After all the donations were brought in, 41 boxes ended up being packed and sent to Derek and his unit. The boxes were shipped out this past week.
Shawn Schroeder said, ďIt might take about a month in total for the boxes to reach them, but we know they will be grateful!Ē
