MJHS students raise money with Help-A-Thon

Morton Junior High School students wash fire trucks at the Morton Fire Department as part of their annual Help-A-Thon fundraiser this year. MJHS was able to raise $41,814.90 during the event. 

Morton CUSD 709 would like to thank the Morton and Groveland community for supporting the students of the Morton Junior High. The student pledges and business sponsors raised $41,814.90 at this year’s annual Help-A-Thon fundraiser. Over the past seven years, the annual fundraiser has raised over $250,000. The funds will be used to support the school activities and assist the teachers with any supplies needed.

The Morton School District is proud of the MJHS students for all of their hard work and participation in this year's Help-A-Thon. Together, the students were able to raise money for their school as well as help local food banks, retirement homes, schools and parks. They washed fire trucks at the Morton Fire Department and washed police vehicles at the Morton Police Department

“The Help-a-thon is one of our favorite days of the school year,” said Principal Lee Hoffman. “Hopefully this volunteer opportunity allowed our students to experience the blessing of helping others and was a benefit to various organizations within our Morton community.”
