Madison Supports Fast-Turn Around Community Need

The Madison Emergency Services Association (MESA) was recently hit hard with food requests.  MCPS teacher asks that people consider a $10 purchase of a student-made rolling pin where all proceeds go to MESA – great for community and great for student learning.

MESA offers financial assistance to qualified families in need.  In Madison County, families without or about to be without electricity, gas, water or telephone service because of inability to pay bills; and elderly people faced with bills for medicines and medical care they cannot pay can turn to Madison Emergency Services Association (MESA) for help.

In response, Wetsel Middle School/Madison County High School teacher Joe Novack spearheads a quick-turn-around opportunity (and educational experience) with his students to provide.  Mr. Novack put out the following offer on March 24 that ends March 25.

Mr. Novack’s classes will make beautiful hand-turned Cherry Rolling Pins for a $10 donation.  These MCPS student-made rolling pins are approximately 19″ long with 3″ tapers on each end or rolling pins with no tapers.  They are also available in oak wood.

After one day, there is enough interest for a $1,000 donation to MESA to help those in greatest need.  We hope this interest doubles before the close on March 25.

Wednesday, March 25 is the last day to place an order.  ALL educational opportunities belong to Madison students.  ALL proceeds will be donated to MESA.  ALL gratitude goes to Mr. Novack. -Superintendent Eberhardt
