Helping Hands for Cancer in Berlin Benefits from Generosity
On May 20, fifth grade “Elves R Us” class project representatives from Clay Lamberton Elementary School in Berlin presented a $1,500 check to Berlin Memorial Hospital’s “Helping Hands for Cancer”.
Elves R Us is a community outreach project these students participate in throughout the year. They raise monies to give to several local charities by building and selling items. During this school year, they have raised more than $6,000.00. The students choose the charities they donate these monies to.
“We are honored “Helping Hands for Cancer” was one of the charitable events chosen by Elves R Us to benefit from their hard work and community involvement,” said Kelly Krause, ThedaCare marketing brand manager. “We thank them sincerely for their generosity and compassion.”
