Kids Helping Kids: FGC Students Raise Money for Backpack Program

Each year, the Ladue Fifth Grade Center’s Penny War provides our students with the opportunity to help other kids! This year, the students raised $1,473 for the Backpack Program that sends food home in the backpacks of students who need it for the weekend. Their funds were matched by an anonymous donor, bringing the total to about $2,950. The Dragon Council kids presented the donation to the representative from Operation Food Search.
