Union Hill student coin drive for victims of the Camp Fire

Submitted by Maura Devlin

Each month, Union Hill School celebrates a character trait. The trait for November was “caring,” and students chose to conduct a school-wide coin drive to support the victims of the Camp Fire in Butte County. Mr. Ross’ seventh and eighth grade leadership students oversaw the drive, including rolling and counting all of the donated coins. This week a check for over $2,000 will be mailed to the Butte County Schools Fire Relief Fund. Pictured, from left, Union Hill eighth graders Blue Bouck and Kylan Barger presented a facsimile of the fire relief check at the “Bearcat of Character” assembly on January 10.
