The Gwin Elementary Ambassadors raise money every year on Valentine’s Day with the Valentines Grams. This year was the first time the Ambassadors voted to sell grams to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which enriches the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work.
During the week of Valentine’s Day, students could buy Valentine grams for 50 cents and have them sent to friends, family members or school staff. Many parents and teachers purchased grams for their children and classmates. Grams were delivered to the students’ classes on Valentine’s Day.
Ambassadors used their recess time to fill out orders and sort the grams by classroom teacher.
Ambassadors raised $696 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
