The past few months have been rough throughout America, due to the treacherous storms ripping through the South. Hurricane Harvey took over 70 lives and left over 40,000 families homeless. Hurricane Irma, so far took 68 lives and left thousands of people without a home, and is still in effect. Thankful that we weren’t hit SMMS is here to help. SMMS organized a fundraiser, where the proceeds of the charity will go to the Red Cross. On September 8, 2017, our students were asked to wear crazy socks, along with bringing in a donation of at least $1. This fundraiser was a success, and a majority of the school participated. We ended up raising $700 in one day. Then on September 18, our students were asked to wear their favorite team jersey and to make a small donation.  These proceeds totaled $278 and will be given to a school in Texas that SMMS, SHHS, and other Catholic schools in the area are adopting as a gift recipient. Although, SMMS is a small school in a small community, we hope that we can inspire other local schools to do whatever they can to help the victims that lost everything they have.
