When an Ill Wind Blows

Justine Villamar, left, and Jamal Adams with some of what they raised.
Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottstown School District.

Pottstown Middle School students helped to raise money to support the victims of the Haiyan/ Yolands typhoon in the Philippines by donating a $1 so that they could wear a shirt of their choice instead of their school uniform shirt.

The effort to aid the typhoon victims was organized by eighth grader Justine Villamar. 

Villamar has a number of family members who were affected by the storm and middle school students came together to help him raise funds to aid the victims of the devastation. 

Through these efforts, over $460.00 was donated to the Red Cross.

Eighth grade teacher Mary Ann Hill said, “I am so proud of our students who understand the importance of helping those in need. Justine is one of our school leaders. He is a member of the chess club, National Honor Society, band, chorus, soccer, and track. His leadership has helped our students play an important role in helping the victims of this terrible devastation.”
