Putting a lid on children’s cancer

Friday, December 2, was Hats On Day at Matheny. All staff members and students were asked to wear hats to raise awareness about children’s cancer. Boxes were distributed around the facility for both hat and monetary donations, the latter to be sent to the Foundation for Children with Cancer.

A group of eighth graders from the Madison Junior School visited Matheny and helped students design special hats and collect money. The effort raised more than $200.
