We were having a positive action meeting and decided we wanted to do something in the Christmas season to give back to the community, everyone thought it was a good idea. We were thinking of doing a food drive, but Hillary Starbird came up with the amazing idea of collecting money for the food bank [Piscataquis Regional Food Center], because it gives more. We started planning what we were going to do for each day. Monday-Pajama day, Tuesday-Hat day, Wednesday-Ugly sweater, Thursday-Hot cocoa, Friday-Candy grams. Each of these cost $0.50-$1.00. We figured we should do a fundraiser and set a goal for the community too. At each game we would go around doing a 50/50 raffle and if you won you would get 50% of the money earned in the 50/50 and a chance to shoot from half court and if you made it you would get $100 bonus money. Every person who won the 50/50 raffle donated the money back to us instead of taking it! To reach these goals we had a candy cane for the community in the gym, with a goal of $250. We also had a Christmas tree for the school with a goal of $250 also. Every time we met a certain amount of money we would color the tree and candy cane in. We exceeded these goals by $215, earning a total of $715 from both the community and school.
