Middle School Students Donate to Veterans Groups

TKMS students make donations to three veterans groups.

After learning about the importance of Veterans Day, Thornapple Kellogg 8th-grade students raised funds to donate to three local organizations. Footprints purchased by the students carry the names of family members, loved ones and friends who are either veterans or currently serving. The footprints line the hallway so as students make their way down the main corridor they are literally "walking in the footsteps of heroes."

Classmates Care Gets Big Donation to Help TK Kids

Classmates Care received a large donation from Thornapple Financial Center and Money Concepts to continue their efforts to provide warm winter clothing items to  TK students in need.

Winter in West Michigan is not a matter of "if" it comes - it's "when" it comes. That means the work of Classmates Care is never ending. This year, the organization was named the recipient of $4,000 raised by the annual Thornapple Financial Center and Money Concepts golf event. Each year the company selects a charity or organization to receive their donation.
