The Hudson Middle School Kids Who Care Club sponsored the annual Money Wars on Dec. 9-12 to assist Hudson’s Operation HELP.
The three “houses” in each grade battled against each other using money as ammunition. Dollars were positive points and coins were negative points. Labeled containers were available to students in the mornings before school and during lunch. Totals were given each day, and students changed their strategies accordingly.
At the end of the day on Friday, the sixth-grade house of Raider White, seventh-grade house of Avalon and eighth-grade house of Windsor came up with the most points and won the prizes of a trophy and treats, as well as bragging rights for the rest of the year.
In reality, everyone won because the Hudson Middle School raised a total of $4,811.58 for Operation HELP, a local organization that helps families in need.
Much of the money was used for the organization’s Christmas campaign, and gifts were purchased for needy families. Some of the money was used to make fleece blankets and the rest was given as a monetary donation to help families during the rest of the year.
