The student council at Maire Elementary School recently raised $688 and collected a large bag of hats for the Meade Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Center at St. John Hospital. Both were the results of Maire’s Hats On day, in which students and staff made donations to wear a hat during school.

Representatives from the student council presented their donations to the Meade Center a few weeks ago.

While there, Dr. Hadi Sawaf thanked the students and told them of the importance for a child undergoing cancer treatment to wear a hat in the summer as protection from sunburn.

“Your precious gifts will be put to good use,” Sawaf said.
