Youngsters Sell Valentine Suckers as BBP Fundraiser
Two enterprising students are selling Valentine's Day suckers today at Camelot Intermediate School in order to raise funds for BBP.
Sarah Rounds, 10, and her friend Rylee Stromer-Iversen, 9, will be peddling cherry, bubblegum and cherry cheesecake-flavored suckers before school, over the lunch hour and after school. They'll be donating all their proceeds to BBP.
We at BBP are very appreciative of Sarah and Rylee's efforts, as we are of all special projects undertaken by Brookings children in support of the BBP mission. Through their fundraising, these children are helping us assist those among their peers whose parents are struggling to put enough food on the family table. They are also helping us raise awareness that food-insecurity and hunger is truly a fact of life right now for a significant number of students in the Brookings schools.
We hope that you have booming sales today, Sarah and Rylee!
