KOSCIUSKO — Two area schools are remaining active in supporting a medical facility in Indiana dedicated to the health and wellness of children.
Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation and Warsaw Community Schools continue to help the non-profit with its much needed fundraising.
At its regular meeting of the board of trustees Monday night, March 12, Tippecanoe Valley Superintendent Brett Boggs announced the school system had achieve Riley Corporation status from the Riley Children’s Foundation.
“Tippecanoe Valley was honored for cumulatively raising at least $1 per student enrolled in the corporation from the participating schools,” Boggs said. “The students councils at Akron Elementary, Mentone Elementary, and Tippecanoe Valley High School were responsible for this achievement.”
The funds raised are used in support of the children and families receiving care at Riley Hospital for Children.
“I think one of the great things we do here is we teach kids how to care about other kids and people,” said Boggs.
At Warsaw, Blue Apron, a student-run restaurant and initiative of the Warsaw Area Career Center, will be donating tips collected on March 21 to Riley Children’s Hospital in observance of Riley Fundraiser Day.
