Students in Moundsville raising money for school affected by flood


Students in the Leo Club at Moundsville Middle School are raising funds for other middle school students affected by southern West Virginia flooding, and they are doing it one dollar at a time.

Club members chose to raise money for Elkview Middle School in Kanawha County which was damaged in the devastating flooding earlier this year. 

Right now, they are just short of their goal of $10,000, but they are hoping that dollar by dollar, they can reach that goal before the deadline.

“Everybody is strapped for money, but everybody can afford a dollar at a time. So, I really thought that that would be a good theme. It’s truly humbled me over this experience because many people have brought in $1, and that’s OK. That’s what the theme was,” said teacher and Leo Club adviser Mike Eskridge.

The students will travel to Elkview Middle to deliver 10,000 $1 bills on December 16th.

If you would like to make a donation and help them reach their goal, you can mail it to the middle school or drop it off at the front office.
