Washington Elementary School has been collecting bottles/cans for the past three weeks to raise money for The First Congregational Church of West Haven. The First Congregational Church has been raising money to rebuild its steeple and we at Washington wanted to help!

Our Washington students did amazing and because of them, we were able to raise 576 pounds in cans and bottles! Below is a picture of our greenhouse filled with your donations! Our next step is to cash them in and donate all the money raised to The First Congregational Church.

We are so lucky to receive so many donations from our community that we were happy to be able to do something in return! The winning grade was 1st grade, and they will be rewarded with a dance party!
