On April 26 and 27, students and staff members from Percy Julian Middle School and Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School raised more than $3100 for Misericordia in conjunction with the organization's 28th Annual Candy Days—shattering the personal record the schools set last year by more than $2000.
"This is an ideal service project for our students because people just can't say no to kids trying to make a difference," said teacher Tim Walsh.
Misericordia is home to more than 600 children and adults with developmental disabilities that range from mild or moderate to severe and profound.
