Talkington School Fund-Raising for Susan G. Komen Foundation [Audio]

Susan G. Komen for the Cure Lubbock Area Affiliate, Facebook

Monday on Lubbock’s First News, Kim Turner, 6th and 7th grade English teacher and middle school student council sponsor, brought a group of girls from the Margaret Talkington School for Young Women Leaders to give the details of their fundraising efforts for the Susan G. Komen foundation.

The girls of the student council and National Honor Society have put together twenty-four jars for collecting change donations in the middle and high school to work towards their goal of raising $500. A group of the students lined up to give the details of their fundraiser. One stated: “part of our school’s mission statement is community service. We volunteer at many organizations here in Lubbock, as well as donating money to different organizations. Part of our academic experience includes teaching us the importance of giving back to our community.”

If one would like to contribute the school’s fundraising efforts, checks made out to Susan G. Komen can be mailed to 415 N Ivory Avenue, Lubbock TX, 79403. The Talkington team will be walking Saturday at the Lubbock Race for the Cure. More information can be found at (and donations made to)
