Salem Grade School students recently participated in a Square 1 Art fundraiser coordinated by art teachers, Brittany Stalker and Ashley Goy. All proceeds benefited The Sharing Center, a local food pantry and resource center in Trevor. Each grade level, kindergarten through sixth grade, began by creating a unique piece of artwork. Families could then order products including mugs, phone cases, sketchbooks, and even ornaments with the students’ artwork printed on them. In total, 141 families purchased items for a profit of $1,379.47. Sharon Pomaville, the executive director of The Sharing Center, accepted the check, which will be used to purchase food, toothbrushes, diapers, pet food, and other necessities to be distributed to people in need. The Sharing Center provides meals for 1,700 community members, half of whom are children, and snacks for 1,100 students on a regular basis. Pomaville said the donation will go a long way in providing services for the local community.
