Thank You From Winterset!

On March 5th, 2022 there was a devastating tornado that hit Winterset Iowa. All of the Gilbert Community Schools hosted fundraisers to try to raise money and/or supplies for the citizens of Madison County.

We hosted a hat fundraiser where students could pay $1 to wear a hat for a day. We also held free will donations for supplies for the Winterset community.

We were able to donate a total of $2,394.60 as well as 3 full totes of supplies for the community!

We wanted to share this with you all and thank you for the donations! We could not have done this without your help!
