Abbotsford Middle students raise funds for Salvation Army

Fundraising through the Builders Club, a student service group

Members of the Abbotsford Middle School Builders' Club organized a fundraiser for the Salvation Army. On Thursday students paid $2 to watch the Christmas movie Home Alone.

Students at Abbotsford Middle School watched the Christmas movie Home Alone on Thursday, enjoying the film while raising funds for the Salvation Army.

The event was organized by the school’s Builders Club. Students were charged $2 admission to see the movie and popcorn was provided.

Builders Club members held fundraisers through the week, with the money going to the local Salvation Army.

The Builders Club is the largest service organization for middle school and junior high students, with more than 100,000 members worldwide. The club falls under the umbrella of the Kiwanis organization, whose mandate is to improve the lives of children around the world.

Jennifer Leeland, who serves as the faculty adviser to the club along with Sue Krause and Katie Savage, said the club is student-led and student-driven. The students choose the service projects including how they will fundraise and what they will fundraise for.
