MFTH Food Packaging Event!

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

  Friday, May 27th will mark our 9th Annual Meals from the Heartland Food Packaging Event. Merrill Students grades 6-8 will gather in the cafeteria during the morning hours and package food to help feed people all around the world! Students have had and will continue to have the opportunity to participate in various activities throughout the school year to help reach our goal of $5000! Activities include our every Wednesday Pizza-by-the-Slice Sales where we partner with Papa John’s, MFTH T-shirt Sales (new this year), our Fundraiser Week where students are able to participate in fun daily activities for just a dollar or two, and the Earth Day Picnic. We are well on our way to reaching our goal! Merrill will also accept direct donations.  If you wish to contribute , you may drop a check (written to Meals from the Heartland) off in the main office. Merrill’s Office Manager, Jane Schumann, will mail your check to Meals from the Heartland and they will mail a receipt directly to your home address. If you wish to volunteer to help set up, package, or clean up during the packaging event, please contact Mr. David O’Connor at david.oconnor@dmschools.org. This is Merrill’s biggest fundraiser event of the year! Mr. O’Connor and the MFTH Student Committee dedicate a lot of time a preparation into making this a huge success! Thank YOU! for all your support!
