Malawi fundraiser in Potsdam
Monday, November 27, 2017 - 5:31 pm

Sunday School students at Potsdam United Methodist Church raised $1,100 for literacy in Malawi, Africa. Additional funds came in after the photo was taken. Some of the students are with Sam Chirwa, field manager for the Malawi Early Literacy Team (MELT); Heather White, team leader; and Carol Stevens, committee member. During their summer read-a-thon the Potsdam students read 105 books and raised $1,100 for the Malawi Early Literacy Team (MELT).  The students had hoped to raise $250, but due to the generosity of family, friends, and congregation members they collected the larger amount.
