WOW Students Students Inspired to Give Back to the Community

Wood River Middle School 6th grade students organized a book drive for the Holiday Baskets.  951 students have participated in this tradition over the past four years.  Over the years, they have contributed $26,259 and almost 2,000 books to the Holiday Baskets organized by the Sawtooth Board of Realtors. The students augmented the donation of $25 per student from WOW Students with almost $3,000 they raised by selling "hat licenses" during Hat Day at WRMS. The students wrote a personal note and Christmas card and inserted them in the books for the Holiday Baskets.
