WINDSOR (WBNG) — Windsor Middle School students were excited for their kickball game Wednesday night for both the fun of the game and to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project.
Many students are a part of their class’s advisor program and one of the tasks they do each year is complete a community service project. This year was the group’s fifth year raising money for Wounded Warriors.
“They’ve done everything as a team to help get this event to function, because it takes a lot of work to pull something off like this,” said Windsor Middle School teacher, Jason Dewey.
The students also felt like all the hard work was worth it.
“It was really great knowing how all the hard work put off and its turned out awesome,” student Shelby Goodwin said. “We had to share ideas with other people and we had to find out good prices and make profits for the Wounded Warriors, because we really want to help them out.”
Together, the team of students honored their fellow mates who fought for our country.
“Well I feel like this is a great opportunity because I have a chance to be able to change the community really,” said student, Jack Frost, who was running the concession stand to raise money.
The Windsor Middle School was able to raise $200 from the event. All of it will go toward the Wounded Warriors Project.
