Westwoods Elementary Receives Award After Fundraiser

Westwoods Elementary school in Traverse City received a check for $5,000 from Bill Marsh, after they placed first in a fundraiser called “Drive for the Kids”.

Schools that participated in the fundraiser in September received a $10 contribution from Chrysler, for every person who took a brief test drive in a Town and Country mini-van.

This year, Westwoods Elementary placed first.

The news was a surprise to their students and staff, who up until today, thought they came in second.

The money received goes directly toward student needs – for things like playgrounds, computers, reading programs, and more.
