Bigelow Hill Students Work To Raise Money For Non-Profits While Learning About Economics

05/15/19 – 5:33 P.M.

Fifth-graders from Bigelow Hill Elementary School were at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts today raising money for local non-profits. Bigelow Hill’s Beth Nissin explained that they wanted the kids to learn about business skills while also giving back.

Nissin explained that students had to create a product to support their chosen non-profit.

Students sold things like snacks, paper figures, bracelets and keychains. The non-profits being represented included the Humane Society, Gliding Stars, and the Hancock Historical Museum to name a few.
