It took just two days for McGlynn Middle School students to raise $2,700 to help Haitian earthquake victims. Last week students donated anywhere from ten cents to $100 for the privilege of wearing a hat in school. The spontaneous “Hat Days for Haiti” was the idea of teachers Sean O’Connor and Michael Cremin. The teachers are pictured above with the school’s Haitian students, along with an oversize check and a representative from Oxfam America, the charity that is receiving the school’s donation. In addition to the McGlynn Middle School students, Medford High School students and faculty raised close to $3,000 for the American Red Cross in a special fundraiser held last week.
