AES students raise nearly $600 for Santa’s Helpers

Alvarado Elementary South hosted its 10th annual Thanksgiving fundraiser, Gobble-A-Go-Go, on Thursday, Nov. 16.

The students and teachers, along with parents if they want to participate, took a bus to Charles Head Stadium and walked four laps around the track.

The walkers earn money by making donations of at least $1. This year the school raised $599.15 that will be given to Santa’s Helpers.

“We were so proud to continue this tradition again this year,” principal Karla Moore said. “This annual walk is for a great cause and AES is proud to support the efforts of the Santa’s Helpers organization.”
