Third Grade Inspires Hope

Over the summer, third graders read the book “The Shoeshine Girl.” Inspired by the story, in September they operated a shoeshine stand and raised more than $1,000 in donations. In October, the group of 68 students worked with ninth graders to make fleece blankets with material purchased with the proceeds from the shoeshine stand; and on Monday, November 17 the third grade donated the nearly 40 “Blankets of Hope” to the Red Devils, a cancer support group.  One special blanket was presented to Barry Rollins ’74, who works in McDonogh’s Development Office, for his wife who is battling cancer. Additionally, a $300 contribution was made to the Huntington’s Disease Society of America in honor of Mick and JP McMillan.
