FIFTH GRADERS in Beth Hutchison’s class at Central Elementary School in Owosso held two lollipop sales to raise money for The Healing Nest, an organization that provides free services for women dealing with cancer. On May 6, Trisha Dezenski (Founder) and Albert Martenis, III (Board Member) of The Healing Nest came to personally thank the class for raising money and awareness for the organization. In total, the students raised $301.
Dezenski told the students, “You’re making a difference in the world,” and added that the donation was greatly appreciated because everyone working at The Healing Nest is a volunteer. The class was inspired to raise the money because Hutchison’s mother is currently battling cancer. (Independent Photo/Jessica Hickey)
