Common Ground - Typhoon Haiyan Fundraiser

December 06, 2013

Midland's service club Common Ground raised over $1,100 for the survivors of Hurricane Haiyan, administered through Direct Relief International of Santa Barbara.  Midland's Student Council agreed to a matching grant of $400 from student life funds to match donations collected during Midland's Thanksgiving festivities.  We thank our visitors for contributing over $700 during Thanksgiving!  The fundraising efforts were brought to a nice ending when Midland students presented Hayley Firestone Jessup of Direct Relief with a check.  Hayley spoke to students about Direct Relief's work in sending medical supplies to the Philippines this week, as well as philanthropy in general.  Gratitude to all involved!  View photos.
