M’TOWN: NUT SWAMP GOES GOLD VS. CANCER

go_gold_nut_swamp_1As part of their annual “Go Gold” week during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the generous families, teachers, and staff of Nut Swamp Elementary School PTA in Middletown collectively donated $4,635 to TheTruth365 (via Infinite Love For Kids Fighting Cancer). The money they collected will be put to use by a network of researchers and oncologists in their ongoing quest to develop new treatments for kids fighting cancer. The students — who purchased themed bracelets, emojis and pencils, and wore gold or yellow to support the cause — were left feeling empowered, knowing that they can make a difference.
