Salem UMC youth raise money for St. Jude's Research Hospital

Sunday, August 28, 2011

The youth of Salem United Methodist Church have made a $1,132.32 donation to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The children collected change from family and friends between Advent and Easter of this year. Each week, they learned about a different charity, and at Easter, the children voted for which charity or charities they wanted their money to go to.

As a group, the children chose to donate all of their funds to St. Jude's, and recently, they traveled as a group to St. Jude's to deliver their check.

Once delivered, they enjoyed the afternoon at the Memphis Zoo.
