Kumpf Students Use Writing Skills to Help Rebuild the Shore

Their work will help with the Boardwalk Raffle Night fundraiser on April 5.

This release was submitted by the Clark School District.

At Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark, students in Nicole Mailloux’s Language Arts classes are applying their persuasive writing skills to help assist New Jersey victims of Hurricane Sandy. Students are writing letters to local businesses asking for donations for raffle prizes to auction off at Kumpf’s Boardwalk Raffle Night fundraiser, which will take place later this year.

The event will occur on April 5th, and students will be creating boardwalk-style games and holding a prize raffle for those attending. All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit New Jersey Hometown Heroes—which deals directly with families affected by the hurricane—and the New Jersey Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund, which is run by Governor Christie.
