The Middle School Student Council recently made a donation of $500 to Paul Martin’s Shine a Ligh7 Foundation. Paul Martin is a Minnesota native who just finished a long career in the NHL. The mission statement for Shine a Ligh7 says:
To improve the quality of life of children in need. Through donations and fundraising events, we distribute funds to qualified non-profit organizations who share our mission in improving the lives of children while promoting their social, emotional and behavioral health.
Our fundraising efforts focus on anti-bullying, suicide prevention and to help end the stigma attached with mental health issues.
The Student Council members were excited to support a cause that is so meaningful to middle school age students.
