The Red Cross Club will be collecting monetary donations the week of December 10-14 during all lunch shifts to benefit Vaccinate a Village. “Vaccinate a Village” is a fundraising activity initiative that helps raise funds to save lives. Each day, 330 children, mostly under the age of five, die from measles. With a $1 donation, they are able to help vaccinate one child. With a $5 donation, it can help vaccinate one family. A $10 donation helps vaccinate one classroom. This year all funds raised will be matched by the MRHS Red Cross Club.
