Weston METCO Meadow Farms Fundraiser (November 17)
The annual Weston METCO Fundraiser that supports the Weston High School METCO Student Activities Group is beginning. This year the Black Student Union (BSU) has decided to try a different vendor – Meadow Farms. It offers a variety of items from candles to candy to Stonewall Kitchen items. 100% of the proceeds will help support and assist the High School METCO students. Previous fundraisers have allowed us to assist with field trips and AP exam fees as well as host METCO student celebrations and community building events. We would love to expand our efforts to include supporting our Global Student Travel Funds, which offers scholarships to assist METCO Student participation in educational travel opportunities. Your orders will help make this possible. For your convenience we are accepting online orders that will be shipped directly to your home. Place your order now through November 17. Please contact Nancy Fournier via email or at 781-786-5851 with questions.
