Minford Fourth Graders Donate to Sierra’s Haven

August 11, 2013

This year the Fourth Grade Classes of Minford Middle School participated in a fundraiser for Sierra’s Haven Animal Shelter. This project was inspired by the book A Dog’s Life: Autobiography of a Stray, by Ann M. Martin. Over a span of Three months the 4th Grade classes held different types of fundraisers.


In March the 4th grade had a coin drive, in April they held a bake sale, and in May the 4th grade would hold the biggest event, a walk-a-thon. Many students walked a total distance of 10 miles. During the walk the Minford 4th Graders would present a check to Sierra’s Haven in a Grand Total of $2,864.95
