Second graders at Robert Martin Elementary School in Andover recently completed their popcorn unit.

They learned about what is involved with running a business and visited The Popcorner and Andover State Bank to provide them with first-hand knowledge.

They raised $300 from the sales of their popcorn as the culmination of the unit. It was decided the money would be used to help children in their community.

The proceeds were donated to Sunlight Children’s Advocacy and Rights Foundation (SCARF), which has Sunshine Children’s Home in Andover and Sunlight Child Advocacy in El Dorado.

Suzi Thien, SCARF’s executive director, was able to talk with the students and share information about SCARF with them.

“They asked the greatest questions,” Thien said. “It was a thrill to be able to talk with them, and we are honored to have been chosen to receive their hard-earned funds.”
