Ring Students Make Donation

Ring Elementary School students recently donated $625 to the Winifred Crawford Dibert Boys and Girls Club of Jamestown from their Red Nose Day fundraising. The students presented the check to Executive Director Jeff Kroon. This is the third year that C.C. Ring Elementary School has participated in the day that was originally introduced as a school wide program by teachers, Brandi Meacham and Carrie Davenport. Students raised the funds in only a week through an all-school grade-level coin challenge in honor of Red Nose Day. As the Boys and Girls Clubs were a designated recipient of Red Nose Day, the school decided to donate the funds to their local club that helps so many Jamestown children. The students also participated in “kindness challenges” and others wrote essays on how kids can help out with projects like Red Nose Day.
