Maplewood United Methodist Church (MUMC) hosted a back to school dance party for area middle school students on Saturday, August 16th. Admission was free, but students were asked to donate cash or non-perishable food items to Weekend on Wheels (WOW), a food program operated by students and faculty at the Maplewood Richmond Heights High School.
On weekends, WOW sends nutritious food to the homes of children in the school district with a need. MUMC was thrilled by the generous giving from the more than 40 students and families that attended the dance.
Not only did this group donate a carload of food, but they also donated more than $100 in cash! Their efforts will go a long way in helping get the shelves at the WOW re-stocked for the new school year.
In addition to thanking the students who attended, MUMC would like express their gratitude to Get Happy Productions and the Green Family for donating the DJ services, lights and music for the dance!
